Every Minute Counts: Improve Maternal Health

Millennium Development Goal #5 (MDG5)

Why is maternal health a Millennium Development Goal? Because healthy mothers are critical for families, communities, and countries. And yet, every ninety seconds, every day, a woman dies due to pregnancy or childbirth. That is more than 900 dead every 24 hours -- more than 342,000 women a year. But change is possible. It is already happening.

This workshop was coordinated by the ACQUIRE Project and made possible by the generous support of the American people through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), under the terms of cooperative agreement GPO-A-00-03-00006-00.
