Globally and Locally, A Rich-Poor Gap Persists.

Abstract

The gap in the levels of maternal death between developed and developing countries continues to be one of the greatest global health inequities. Research conducted by Immpact, a global research initiative, also found huge inequities in the countries where it worked. Although strategies such as delivery-fee-exemption policies and village midwives have resulted in increased utilisation of services, large differences in access to and use of skilled care between rich and poor remains.
