The Lancet Maternal Health Series: Global Research and Evidence (FutureLearn)
Hear the latest expert evidence from The Lancet Maternal Health Series and learn what you can do to improve maternal healthcare. Imagine a woman in a remote village, perhaps in Africa or South Asia. She’s giving birth at home with a relative. Without access to drugs or transport, she could die. While maternal deaths have nearly halved in the past 25 years worldwide, thanks to the increased use of maternity services, progress has not been universal.
