Maternal Mortality Increasing in US and Canada, Decreasing in Other Countries

April 13, 2010 Maternal mortality data show accelerated decreases in China, Egypt, Ecuador, and Bolivia, but surprising increases in the United States, Canada, and Denmark, according to the results of a database analysis reported online April 12 in The Lancet.



"Maternal mortality remains a major challenge to health systems worldwide," write Margaret C. Hogan, MSc, from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation and the Department of Health Services, School of Public Health, University of Washington, Seattle, and colleagues. "Reliable information about the rates and trends in maternal mortality is essential for resource mobilisation, and for planning and assessment of progress towards Millennium Development Goal 5...the target for which is a 75% reduction in the maternal mortality ratio (MMR) from 1990 to 2015. We assessed levels and trends in maternal mortality for 181 countries."
