Title: Strategic directions for accelerating the reduction of maternal mortality in the Eastern Mediterranean Region: a regional framework
Authors: World Health Organization, Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean
Issue Date: 2005
Language: English
Abstract: In the Eastern Mediterranean Region, around 53 000 women of childbearing age die every year as a result of pregnancy-related complication, second only to the African Region with regard to the number of maternal deaths. Current efforts in some countries are still insufficient to achieve the fifth Millennium Development Goal on improving maternal health. Strong commitment, intensive efforts and effective national policies and strategies are now urgently required in order to translate vision into action. This publication provides a background on the current situation of maternal health in the Eastern Mediterranean Region, including underlying causes and contributing factors, and describes strategic directions aimed at accelerating the reduction of maternal mortality in the Region and moving closer to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals
