Review of Maternal Health Policies/Strategies from a Reproductive Rights Perspective #MaternalHealth #MaternalHealthPolicies #Reproductive Rights #WomenRights
PDF File Size: 835 KB | Download   
There is a strong consensus among health experts regarding effective interventions to address maternal mortality, these are generally easy to reach and are even cost- effective. Yet many women living in the eleven countries selected for the review do not benefit from them. The obstacles range from inadequate allocation of resources for maternal health services, severe health workforce crisis, unmet need for family planning, and lack of data and accountability mechanisms. This is a result of denial of reproductive rights of women and girls. Reproductive rights results in entitlements to the conditions, including access to health- care, that will enable them to affect their lives; and to demand accountability from the people and institutions that have the duty to take steps to fulfil those rights.
