Trends in maternal mortality 2000 to 2017

Извор: WUNRN - 25.10.2019

This report presents internationally comparable global, regional and country-level estimates and trends for maternal mortality between 2000 and 2017. The Sustainable Development Goals, launched in 2015, include a target for reducing the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100,000 live births by 2030. The data in this report show that the world remains off-track in efforts to achieve this important and globally agreed objective.

Accurate measurement of maternal mortality remains challenging and many deaths still go uncounted. Many countries still lack well-functioning civil registration and vital statistics systems, and where such systems do exist, reporting errors – whether incompleteness (unregistered deaths, also known as “missing”) or misclassification of cause of death – continue to pose a major challenge to data accuracy.
