COMOROS: Head of State Launches Campaign to Reduce Maternal Mortality

Alwatwan on 17 May reported that the campaign to reduce maternal mortality in Africa (CARMMA) was officially launched in the Comoros on 16 May at the Palace of the people. The ceremony under the theme "no woman should die giving life" assembled a crowd heavily dominated by women from different parts of the country. "The right to life by giving life is a universal human right and that every woman must fully enjoy this right," said Douglas Casson Coutts, Resident Coordinator of the UN System and UNFPA Representative. In addition, the President of the Republic announced the appointment of a CARMMA ambassador whose mission, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, is to accelerate the reduction of maternal mortality so that fewer women die in childbirth.
