A small reminder.

UNICEF released this pretty compelling video, “Missing” to bring attention to the prevalence of maternal mortality in the world. Their statement:

“We call these women ‘missing’ because their deaths could have been avoided. In fact, 80 per cent of maternal deaths could be averted if women had access to essential maternal health services.
We know where and how these women are dying, and we have the resources to prevent these deaths. Yet, maternal mortality is still one of the most neglected problems internationally.”
