dc.description.abstract This article provides an overview of hospital-based rates of caesarean delivery in 18 Arab countries and the association between these rates and selected demographic and socioeconomic characteristics. Data on caesarean section were based on 2 of the most recent national hospital-based surveys in each country and on published studies based on hospital samples. High levels of caesarean delivery were found in Egypt (26percent in 2003), followed by Sudan (20percent in 1993). Six countries and the West Bank area of Palestine had rates 15percent and 11 countries and Gaza had rates between 5percent and 15percent. The findings indicate an increasing trend of caesarean section delivery in the region. Policies aiming at reducing surgical deliveries should seek to identify and address these risk factors.
