Maternal Mortality Comparison: USA vs. Israel Vs. Best of Europe (Germany, France, Italy)
> 303,000 women died due to complications of pregnancy or childbirth in 2015. Almost all of these deaths occurred in low- and middle-income countries (99%). Reducing maternal mortality crucially depends upon ensuring that women have access to quality care before, during and after childbirth.
>Every day, approximately 830 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth.
99% of all maternal deaths occur in developing countries.
>Maternal mortality is higher in women living in rural areas and among poorer communities.
>Young adolescents face a higher risk of complications and death as a result of pregnancy than other women.
>Skilled care before, during and after childbirth can save the lives of women and newborn babies.
>Between 1990 and 2015, maternal mortality worldwide dropped by about 44% from an estimated 532,000 in 1990 to 303,000 in 2015. The progress is notable, but the annual rate of decline is less than half of what is needed to achieve the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) target of reducing the maternal mortality ratio by 75% between 1990 and 2015, which would require an annual decline of 5.5%. The 44% decline since 1990 translates into an average annual decline of just 2.3%. Between 1990 and 2000, the global maternal mortality ratio decreased by 1.2% per year, while from 2000 to 2015 progress accelerated to a 3.0% decline per year.
