GOAL 5: Improve Maternal Health
Target 1: Reduce by three quarters between 1990 and 2015, the maternal mortality ratio.
Target 2: Achieve universal access to reproductive health.
Each year more than 500 000 women die during pregnancy or childbirth, almost all of them in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia.
Health-care interventions can reduce maternal deaths, but need to be made more widely available.
No single intervention can address the multiple causes of maternal deaths

the right thing to do but the
smart thing to do.
