Summary

Estimates have shown that roughly 214 million women across the globe want to avoid pregnancy, yet lack modern, effective forms of contraception.1 Approximately 800 women die each day due to unforeseen complications in pregnancy and childbirth, the majority of which are preventable. In 2015 alone, 303,000 women died as a result of maternal-related complications.2 These maternal deaths occur primarily in low-income, under-resourced regions of developing nations.3 The leading causes of such deaths are hemorrhaging, hypertension and infection.4 A woman in a developing nation is 33 times more likely to lose her life due to maternal complications than a woman who lives in a developed nation.5 Throughout low-income nations, less than half of deliveries are attended by a skilled birth attendant.6 Child marriages can also pose threats to a woman’s health, creating issues during pregnancy and childbirth and rendering the girls vulnerable to domestic abuse.7 Show References
