A life for a life.
In exchange for a new life, there are many maternal deaths in some areas of the world. This tends to reflect the inequalities in access to health services while highlighting the gap between the rich and the poor. A majority of maternal deaths happen in developing countries despite us being in the 21st century. Many women in less developed countries are at a higher risk of maternal deaths than those in developed countries. Not only due to poor infrastructure but Poor women in remote areas are also least likely to receive adequate healthcare as a result of low numbers of skilled health workers. Positive change can happen quickly if the right actions are taken to improve maternal health. To save new life, we should address the inequalities in access to and quality of reproductive, maternal, and newborn health care services. Stakeholders in charge should ensure accountability in order to improve quality of care and equity.
