When we invest in maternal health, we ensure that hundreds of thousands of women survive pregnancy and childbirth. When that happens, newborns are more likely to survive, children are more likely to stay in school, women are able to make invaluable contributions to their communities and the workforce, health systems are stronger, and nations’ economies grow. Improved maternal health care sets the foundation for women, children, families, communities, and societies to thrive for generations to come.
