Abstract

Over half a million women die each year due to complications during pregnancy and birth. The vast majority of these deaths are preventable. Despite longstanding international commitments to reducing maternal mortality, progress to date has been disappointing. This publication introduces the contribution of the right to the highest attainable standard of health to reducing maternal mortality.
