United Nations agencies report steady progress in saving mothers’ lives


New data from WHO, UNICEF,UNFPA and UNPD and the World Bank Group show a 45% reduction in maternal deaths since 1990. More than 1 in 4 maternal deaths are caused by pre-existing medical conditions, including diabetes, obesity, malaria and HIV. Integrated care for women with conditions such as diabetes and obesity will reduce deaths and prevent long-lasting health problems.
