What Are The Risk Factors Of Maternal Mortality
Maternal mortality is unacceptably high . About 830 women die from pregnancy or childbirth – related complications in the world every day . The 99% of all maternal deaths occur in developing countries . The maternal mortality is higher in women living in rural areas and among poorer communities . The young adolescents face a higher risk of complication and death as a result of pregnancy than other women . It was estimated that in 2015 , roughly 303000 women died and following pregnancy and childbirth . Almost all of these deaths occurred in low- resource settings , and most could have been prevented(1) . In sub-saharan Africa , a number of countries halved their levels of maternal mortality since 1990 . In other regions, including Asia and North Africa, even greater headway was made. Between 1990 and 2015, the global maternal mortality ratio (the number of maternal deaths per 100 000 live births) declined by only 2.3% per year between 1990 and 2015. However, increased rates of accelerated decline in maternal mortality were observed from 2000 onwards. In some countries, annual declines in maternal mortality between 2000–2010 were above 5.5% Between 2016 and 2030 , as part of the Sustainable Development Goals, the target is to reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100 000 live births. In this report will discuss about the risk factor of maternal mortality.
