Every year some eight million women suffer pregnancy-related
complications and over half a million die. Most of these deaths can
be averted even where resources are limited but in order to do so,
the right kind of information is needed upon which to base actions.
Knowing the statistics on levels of maternal mortality is not
enough-we need information that helps us identify what can be done
to prevent such unnecessary deaths. Beyond the numbers presents
ways of generating this kind of information. The approaches
described go beyond just counting deaths to developing an
understanding of why they happened and how they can be averted. It
is directed at health professionals, health care planners and
managers working in the area of maternal and newborn health who are
striving to improve the quality of care provided. The publication
includes a CD-ROM of sample data collection and analysis forms to
serve as a basis for local adaptation.
