Overview

The 2005 estimates of maternal mortality provide an up-to-date indication of the extent of the maternal mortality problem globally and its evolution since 1990. They strongly indicate a need for both, improved action for maternal mortality reduction and increased efforts for the generation of robust data to provide better estimates in the future.
