SOT: Peter Salama You’re watching UNICEF television.


Every year about half a million women die needlessly.


They die because they cannot get basic health care during pregnancy and child birth.


They die because they live in the developing world … and not in the West, where pregnancy is a hundred times less likely to kill women than in places such as sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.


They die because a combination of poverty and societal attitudes make women’s health one of the most neglected areas in health care.


SOT Peter Salama
UNICEF Chief of Health
“ The causes of maternal death are not as easy to deal with, not as easy as child health problems, so they’re causes like haemorage, blood loss, infection, obstructed labour, hypertension and HIV and malaria and these causes require the health system to actually be functional.”


Maternal death rates have barely fallen in the past two decades … yet every mother’s death leaves her children, her wider family, and her community struggling to fill the gap she has left.


SOT Peter Salama
UNICEF Chief of Health
“Newborn health is affected. We know of course that that with women who are sick and women who have died the child won’t have access to crucial breastmilk in the first six months of life. And there’s very solid data in the medium to long term to suggest that actual death rates are higher for children who grow up without mothers.”


The solutions to maternal mortality are clear and achievable. And they make sound economic sense: women’s health is not just a moral imperative, it builds stronger, more successful communities. Children with mothers grow up healthier, better educated and more able to make a positive contribution to society.


SOT: Peter Salama
UNICEF Chief of Health
“We also need to address the fundamental underlying causes—women’s low status, increased education levels of girls and do what we can to increase women’s empowerment.”


In mustering the will, and the money, to reduce the human toll of giving birth in the developing world, the benefit to humankind must be considered. Because the death of just one woman stunts the lives of many—from the children she leaves behind, to the communities and nations that are literally the poorer for her passing.
