The stimulus of this study was the question as to whether current program strategies can reduce maternal mortality quicker than in the historically successful countries for Malaysia and Sari Lanka. Through cases studies, research and analysis of extent data of safe motherhood programs in seven countries, the answer is yes: lessons learned concern six factors associated with recent success in reducing maternal mortality.This book provides a thorough analysis of factors reducing maternal mortality through three retrospective case studies in China, Honduras and Zimbabwe; and four research studies

Reduction of maternal mortality is one of the major goals of several recent international conferences and has been included in the Millennium Development Goals. However, measuring maternal mortality is difficult and complex. Reliable estimates of the dimensions of the problem are not generally available and it is difficult to compare the data obtained from different sources and to assess the overall magnitude of the problem. In response to these challenges, WHO, UNICEF and UNFPA have developed an approach that seeks both to generate estimates for countries with no data and to correct available

Current data and trends in morbidity and mortality for the sub-Saharan Region as presented in this new edition reflect the heavy toll that HIV/AIDS has had on health indicators, leading to either a stalling or reversal of the gains made, not just for communicable disorders, but for cancers, as well as mental and neurological disorders.

For the one billion people living in the world’s poorest countries, where the burden of disease is highest, those who are born or who die are still not counted. The health profile of these populations is akin to an iceberg: the bulk of reliable data remains hidden. This great information void is a major, long-standing constraint to the articulation of effective policies and programs aimed at improving the health of the world’s poor. As such, it perpetuates profound health inequities in the developing nations of the South. This first volume of Population and Health in Developing Countries p

A color atlas depicting the geographical patterns of death, by cause and by sex throughout Europe, at both national and subnational levels. Data from 1980/1981 and 1990/1991 are included to facilitate the detection of trends over time. Furthermore, by showing mortality rates for administrative areas within countries, the atlas allows detection of geographical differences that are concealed when national average mortality rates are used alone for the purposes of international comparisons. The atlas is the result of a project conducted by the WHO European Centre for Environment and Health in col
