Rapid progress in some countries demonstrates that when governments take a strategic approach to the safe motherhood challenge – by deploying trained midwives, ensuring adequate essential supplies, making family planning accessible and providing timely obstetric care to women with complications, we are getting results. Still, there is more work to be done in delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted and every childbirth is safe.
