Since 1990, world-wide maternal mortality has been reduced by 47% and child mortality by 49%. However, the MDGs aimed at reducing under-five mortality by two-thirds (MDG4) and maternal mortality by three-quarters, while achieving universal access to reproductive health (MDG5), have not been reached.
The Colloquium will make recommendations on how maternal health can be improved in an integrated post-2015 development framework. It will explore how we can work towards a vision of a healthy life for all, beyond reductions in mortality, in line with the UN Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health.
The 57th Colloquium will focus on three areas:
- Respectful childbirth
- Maternal morbidity and its consequences on newborn’s and women’s health
- Maternal mortality surveillance
