Strategies toward ending preventable maternal mortality (EPMM)
FEBRUARY 2015 - The EPMM targets and strategies are grounded in a human rights approach to maternal and newborn health, and focus on eliminating significant inequities that lead to disparities in access, quality and outcomes of care within and between countries. Concrete political commitments and financial investments by country governments and development partners are necessary to meet the targets and carry out the strategies for EPMM.
Request for Public Comment
Phase II: Indicators to monitor social, political and economic determinants of maternal health and survival
- Dates: The public comment period will be open from August 22, 2016 through September 2, 2016.
- Purpose: The purpose of this public comment period is to capture input from stakeholders with knowledge and interest in maternal health measurement on proposed indicators to monitor key social, political and economic determinants of maternal health and survival outlined in the “Strategies toward ending preventable maternal mortality (EPMM)” document, released in 2015 by the World Health Organization to support improvements in maternal health and survival in the SDG period (2015 – 2030).
The public comment period seeks to validate the importance of proposed indicators for monitoring key distal determinants of maternal health and survival and for driving improvement in these areas. The ultimate goal of this effort is to support the Indicator and Monitoring Framework for the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescent’s Health – particularly in its Thrive and Transform agenda – and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and to complement other global monitoring efforts.
