Results The study population comprised 659 women who delivered at 20 facilities. PCS were given to 158 (68.1%) of 232 women delivering after 27-34 weeks of pregnancy and 119 (27.9%) of 427 delivering after 35-36 weeks. Teenaged girls were less likely to receive PCS after 27-34 weeks than were women aged 20-35 years (odds ratio [OR] 0.22; 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.07-0.70). Among women who delivered after 35-36 weeks, the odds of receiving PCS were lower in urban hospitals than in periurban or rural hospitals (OR 0.04; 95% CI 0.00-0.44), and there was significant hospital-level variance with regard to the administration of PCS (P < 0.05).
