After the Alliance for Maternal Health Equality breakfast event, we caught up with Priya Agrawal, Executive Director of MSD for Mothers. She gave us a quick insight into MSD for Mothers which is a global campaign to end preventable maternal mortality and then turned her attention to Europe.
There is an assumption that Europe is on top of the issue, but unfortunately, maternal mortality is on the rise, with women getting lost in the averages in Europe. Women from the most vulnerable populations are at most risk, which is why we need to be more active to put the spotlight on the issue.
Priya attended the Sustainable Development Goals in New York and reiterated the message that the maternal mortality goal established during the Millennium Development Goals was not reached, hence its reappearance as part of the global goals.
