An Introduction to Global Health - Maternal Health (13:21)
Rating

What is maternal mortality? Maternal mortality is the risk of a mother to die when she is pregnant. It's the number of maternal deaths per 100,000 live births. This number has decreased enormously in the past century or decades, but the differences between countries are huge. Why do some expecting mothers end up on the road to death, and some on the road to survival? What is needed to read the SDG 3.1, to lower maternal mortality ratio to 70 in the world? For an introduction to why mothers die, and what can be done to prevent these deaths, take a look at this video.

An Introduction to Global Health - Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (10:13)
Rating

This video introduces the content and the history that has led to the definition of the broad approach called sexual and reproductive health and rights. It has developed from use of contraception and the rights and knowledge to decide how many children a family wants, over maternal mortality during birth and sexual transmission of diseases. Today the area also includes discussions of sexual orientation, relations outside marriage and early marriage.

SDG 3.1: Maternal mortality
Rating

“By 2030, reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100,000 live births”
Professor Thorkild Tylleskär, CISMAC, CIH, University of Bergen

According to Tylleskär, there have been some improvements in the average levels of maternal mortality world-wide – enough that the topic is no longer being discussed as “high priority”. However, he stresses, this average value does not reflect the unacceptably high levels that remain in Low Income Countries (LIC). Thankfully, he points out that the issues is still included in the Economist’s recent list of “169 Commandments”.

In many LIC, Tylleskär says, a woman’s inherent value still lies in her ability to produce children. He showed a short film to underline the challenges that remain to be addressed. “Why did Mrs X die?” is produced by the WHO and addresses how maternal mortality is connected to the unjust situation of women in low income societies.
