  6. 6. More than ½ of the world’s deaths pass by… THIS IS A MAJOR CONCERN: reliable cause-of-death data are crucial forHEALTH PLANNING and PRIORITIZATION 3 2 1
  7. 7. We are missing VITAL EVENT DATA to determine maternal deaths :88 countries LACK complete data Over 80% of all births occur countries have in countries where27 NO data maternal cause of death data DON’T EXIST or65 countries have COMPLETE data are INCOMPLETE
