The Lancet’s Maternal Health Series or every Woman every Newborn



THE LANCET
MATERNAL HEALTH SERIES
FOR EVERY WOMAN
EVERY NEWBORN
EVERYWHERE

Take action for the right for
access to good quality care
The Lancet’s Maternal Health Series has brought us new evidence giving us the latest picture of the progress made on maternal mortality and maternity services.

Maternal mortality has nearly halved in the past 25 years and more women than ever are accessing quality health services.

Compare the latest data on maternal mortality ratios across Africa using African Health Stats.

However, the reduction in maternal deaths fell short of the MDG target and globally, nearly 53 million of the world’s poorest women did not receive skilled health assistance at birth.

There is much more that we can do to end preventable maternal deaths. The biggest gap is the lack of timely, quality, and evidence-based care that reaches all women. We must expand access to quality care around the world. Maternal health is a human right.

We want to see more action to end preventable maternal deaths. Use the evidence from the Lancet Series to inform your practice, your advocacy, your policies.
This MamaYe infographic outlines the progress made in improving maternal survival across Africa and how we can all work to help end preventable maternal deaths.

MamaYe brings you summaries of the six papers in the Lancet series. The series conveys the latest expert knowledge of maternal health, updates the evidence, and captures what has worked well and what we need to improve.

Paper 1: Diversity and divergence: the dynamic burden of poor maternal health
Paper 2: Beyond too little, too late and too much, too soon: a pathway towards evidence-based, respectful maternity care worldwide
Paper 3: The scale, scope, coverage, and capability of childbirth care
Paper 4: Drivers of maternity care in high-income countries: can health systems support woman-centred care?
Paper 5: Next generation maternal health: external shocks and health-system innovations
