Maternal health

Every day some 830 women die from causes related to pregnancy or childbirth. Many more have serious injuries or long-lasting consequences. 

IPPF works around the world to improve maternal health through our clinics and outreach services and by training health workers, improving the availability of essential medicines and strengthening health systems.
