Ending Preventable Maternal Mortality: USAID Maternal Health Vision for Action - Evidence for Strategic Approaches

USAID

The U.S. Government is committed and working toward the goal of Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths (EPCMD) in a generation. In June of 2014, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) released a vision for maternal health, Ending Preventable Maternal Mortality: USAID Maternal Health Vision for Action. The document lays out a vision for “a world where no woman dies from preventable maternal causes and maternal and fetal health are improved” and sets out a plan for USAID to contribute to accelerating reductions in the maternal mortality ratio (MMR) and improving maternal and fetal health with targets for 2020. This document lays out the evidence that will help achieve this vision.
