SWAZILAND: Maternal Mortality on the Decline

The Times of Swaziland on 12 April reported that Swaziland has taken great strides towards the reduction of maternal mortality in the country. It was noted that one of the 8 MDGs that has made some progress is MDG 5: Improve Maternal Health. UNFPA Representative, Dr. Hassan Mohtashami noted that the one area where the country is not so well is the training of skilled birth attendants or midwifes. To this end, UNFPA in collaboration with the WHO, has assisted the Ministry of Health and Nursing Council to strengthen their standard for education and practice and curriculum for midwifes.
