The Issue

Invest in Women - it pays!

Too many women and newborns are dying worldwide during pregnancy and childbirth.

  • Every year, approximately 289,000 girls and women die from pregnancy-related causes.
  • Nearly 3 million newborn babies die every year, also from causes that are mainly preventable and typically linked to the mother's health.
  • Huge disparities exist between rich and poor countries, and between the rich and poor in all countries.

The reason? Lack of political will and inadequate financial investment. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We know what to do to save these lives.
