Strengthening Good Governance to Improve Maternal Health

As the global community narrows in on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), there is a renewed dedication to improving the health of women and children. The evidence is beginning to show that maternal deaths are declining globally; 358,000 women will die this year in pregnancy and childbirth compared to over 500,000 just a few years ago. In many countries, where little or no progress has been made in reducing maternal mortality since the MDGs were agreed to in 2000, access to and utilization of proven, cost-effective, life-saving interventions is urgently needed.
