Vol 6 No 1 - Reproductive Health: An Achievable Revolution

Issued: 1997 (36 pages)

There has been a big fall in the maternal death rate since 1990, from some 500,000 to an estimated 287,000 in 2010, a decline of 47 per cent. But the human tragedies involved are no less real today and hit especially hard in Southern Asia and Sub Saharan Africa. This issue of the magazine brings the reality of this into sharp focus, not only in revealing the failure by donor countries to live up to their promises, but with personal stories and examples of progress in meeting women’s basic health needs, from India to Brazil.
