Global, regional, and national levels of maternal mortality, 1990–2015: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015
Kassebaum, Nicholas J. | 2017
Seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the global community to provide benchmark targets
for global development between 2015 and 2030 and to reframe the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to achieve sustainable
global development. This report presents data on maternal mortality in 195 countries from 1990 to 2015. Maternal
mortality data were categorized in 3 formats, namely, number of deaths, cause-specific mortality rate per capita, and cause
fraction. The overall maternal mortality was modeled using cause-of-death ensemble modeling (CODEm). The number of
deaths, maternal mortality ratios (MMRs), and 95% uncertainty intervals were reported for all estimates.
