Between 1990 and 2013, maternal mortality worldwide dropped by almost 50%, but the world is not on track to meet Millennium Development Goal 5, to reduce maternal mortality by two-thirds by 2015.

 

Adequate and accessible service delivery saves mothers’ lives, but broader social and political support structures must be in place to ensure these services reach the people who need them. The USAID-funded Health Policy Project has worked to build the capacity of governments, civil society, and local partners to effectively manage and implement maternal health policy interventions that are sustainable, effective, and grounded in human rights.


This panel discussion will focus on the ways policy and advocacy can influence maternal health outcomes and HPP's work supporting countries to finance, manage, and implement lifesaving measures for mothers around the globe.
