AbstractGlobally, progress in improving the survival and well-being of mothers has been slow, and this holds true for the Eastern Mediterranean Region. Thus at the current pace, it is unlikely that the Millennium Development Goal related improving maternal health will be achieved in the Region by the year 2015.

The action needed to redress the situation and improve maternal health, and hence achieve the fourth Millennium Development Goal, is presented
