As part of the Pulitzer Center’s commitment to raising awareness for the under-reported issue of global maternal mortality, the center has launched a new interactive site , Dying for Life, dedicated to maternal health reporting projects.
“Dying for Life is a response to this crisis [maternal ill health and death], viewing motherhood as a continuum that encompasses reproductive health, family planning, pregnancy, childbirth and infant and maternal mortality. Our forward-looking reporting includes dispatches from Guinea Bissau, India, Mexico, Ethiopia and Nigeria. We hope you’ll join the global conversation by engaging with the journalists, and sharing your own stories about maternal health and its impact on your community.”

The Pulitzer Center has also partnered with Helium to launch a Global Maternal Health Writing Contest, launched on May 24th.
“We want to know your thoughts on questions raised by Pulitzer Center-sponsored reporting projects around the globe – and the winning essays will be showcased on the Pulitzer Center’s website and on Helium. Winning writers will also receive a Pulitzer Center Global Issues/Citizen Voices Award.”
The deadline for the Global Maternal Health Writing Contest is Thursday June 24 and winners will be announced on Wednesday July 7.
