A decade of strategic partnerships, private sector innovation and data-driven impact to help create a world where no woman has to die while giving life
Giving birth can be one of the most beautiful and joyous experiences in a woman’s life, but for many — too many — it can be a scary and tragic event.
Maternal mortality worldwide is too high. Approximately 295,000 women died during and following childbirth in 2017. Most of these deaths (94%) occurred in locations where women have few resources. But no matter what corner of the globe you live in, most of these deaths could have been prevented.

For a lot of families, talking about health issues may not be something typically brought up at the dinner table—or a family reunion.
“There were reservations about talking about the family history,” says Ruby Holmes, senior specialist in clinical data management at Merck. “It’s one of those things that just didn’t get talked about a lot until something happened or someone was very sick.”
Holmes, a 68-year-old African American breast cancer survivor, says that when she was growing up, trips to the doctor ‘wasn’t something that was done on a regular basis.’
