International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics Report on Maternal Mortality Rates

The International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) is reporting that at the 15th Annual African Union Summit in Kampala, Uganda, discussion is focusing on issues of maternal mortality and maternal health. As linked to the underfunding of maternal health campaigns that we first alerted to yesterday, international focus is being placed importantly on methods of reducing maternal deaths, many of which are preventable with adequate care. Quoting news provider Xinhua, FIGO states that “In order to meet the Millennium Development Goals devised by the agency the country has to do more to improve maternal health both pre- and post-pregnancy.”
