Hi and thanks for visiting Maternal Mortality Daily.
In the name of the 1500 women who die each day around the world from pregnancy complications, Maternal Mortality Daily tracks the latest news and blogs addressing global maternal mortality. The idea is to create a one-stop-shop for the latest info on progress toward Millennium Development Goal 5–on a daily basis.
I am Kate Mitchell. I recently completed my MPH in International Health from Boston University. For my ‘culminating experience’ at BU, I produced a 25 minute multimedia piece on the public health paradox of high levels of institutionalized deliveries and high levels of maternal mortality in the Dominican Republic. I am currently working as a Knowledge Management intern with the Maternal Health Task Force at EngenderHealth.
I look forward to your help and participation on this blog. Please alert me to new programs/research you are working on and let me know if you hear about any maternal health news that should be posted. I’ll do my best to keep the site up to date so that it serves as a useful resource for all who are working to reduce maternal mortality around the world.
