The RCM works with partners across the world on high quality maternity care. A visual online map of maternal mortality ratio, access to antenatal care, and fertility rate by country.
Some of the key indicators for maternal health inequalities across countries are maternal mortality ratio and access to antenatal care for pregnant women, and there are substantial differences in fertility rates as well. This information has been presented visually on the online map. The geographical map layers are for each of the indicators and presented for most of the countries in the world using data from the United Nations.
The project work undertaken by the RCM with partners in four countries are highlighted in the layer ‘RCM Work Areas’. This includes Nigeria, Uganda, Malawi and Cambodia and further details can be found by clicking on the information icon.
