The issue of reducing maternal morbidity and mortality has been addressed in the Region, nevertheless the results are still insufficient. Even though we have the knowledge about cost-effective interventions that could prevent over 90% of maternal deaths and severe obstetric complications, women and children still face financial, geographic, social, legal and attitudinal barriers which prevent them from accessing o quality services
Many things still need to be done within Health Services as there are deficiencies in coverage, quality, and continuity of care; in the availability of supplies; and in the equitable access to culturally sensitive health services regardless where a woman lives or of her socioeconomic status.
This document presents a set of indicators to measure progress and impact of the implementation of the Regional Plan, and to allow comparability of information across local adaptations.
