Abstract

Maternal mortality remains one of the highest causes of death in the world today. The main objective of this book is to focus on a critically important part of maternal mortality and human rights viz. monitoring, accountability and redress. Accountability encompassing the local, national and international levels. The context includes the UN Human Rights Council maternal mortality resolution, as well as MDG 5. Importantly, the book focuses on neither maternal health, nor maternal mortality, nor even maternal mortality and human rights. Its focus is the very important issue of maternal mortality, human rights and accountability. The work provides an introduction to a selection of key issues on maternal mortality, human rights and accountability. It comes out of a roundtable conference held in Geneva in 2010 that aimed to focus on one critically important part of maternal mortality/human rights – accountability – and provide a forum (and book) where maternal health and human rights experts could listen and learn from each other. The volume also includes additional resource material on maternal mortality, human rights and accountability.
