The Dream Project

Resources for MDG 5 (Improve Maternal Health)

Fact:  Every year more than 500,000 women die in pregnancy and childbirth—that is almost one death every minute of the day!  Thirty times more suffer injuries, infections and other complications related to pregnancy.

Target:    Reduce by 3/4 the ratio of women dying in childbirth. 

Imagine... if you were a girl living in a country where you could get married at the age of 12...that you gave birth to a child while your body was still maturing making it more likely that you would experience complications during birth…and you didn’t have access to emergency health services or people skilled in assisting births.
