Every death counts: using a census to measure maternal mortality

Abstract

Accurate information is essential when planning programmes to reduce maternal deaths. Civil registration systems are inadequate in many developing countries. So how can policy-makers access this essential information? Research co-ordinated by Macro International, USA, suggests that adding questions about maternal deaths to national censuses may be one solution.
