Maternal Mortality, Human Rights and Accountability, Hardback Book

Maternal Mortality, Human Rights and Accountability Hardback

Edited by Paul Hunt, Tony Gray


The scale of maternal mortality and morbidity today is staggering.

This book focuses on a vital part of a human rights response to maternal mortality, viz. accountability. Accountability encompasses monitoring, review and redress at the local, national and international levels.

The book's context includes the UN Human Rights Council maternal mortality and morbidity resolutions, as well as Millennium Development Goal 5.

It comes out of a roundtable conference held in Geneva during 2010 that examined maternal mortality, human rights and accountability and provided a forum where maternal health and human rights experts could listen to, and learn from, each other.

As well as revised and updated conference papers, this volume includes a rich collection of additional resource material on maternal mortality, human rights and accountability.
