Maternal Health in India

From: Secretary of Health, India

To: Minister of Finance, India
Introduction

Each year, 117,000 Indian women die in pregnancy or childbirth: nearly one-quarter of all maternal deaths in the world.i Women who live in rural North India and face high gender inequalities in terms of access to education, health services, nutrition, and family planning; and are especially vulnerable to obstetric complications. It is crucial to address the needs of underserved women to improve the well-being of families and the country’s economic productivity. We must focus on cost-effective, high-impact strategies to protect maternal health, which include expanding Iron Folic Acid supplementation, implementing community-based programs to change cultural norms around reproductive health, improving transportation networks, building more emergency obstetric hospitals, and enforcing regulations against gender inequalities.
