The health of mothers has long been acknowledged to be a cornerstone of public health and a spotlight to unacceptably high level of maternal mortality has been a feature of worldwide health and development discussions since the 1980s. However, although a couple of countries have made remarkable progress in recent years, the truth has not generally followed the rhetoric. Health and development partners have did not invest seriously in safe motherhood and samples of large-scale and sustained programmes are rare. Safe motherhood has attended be seen as a subset of other programmes like child survival or reproductive health and is usually seemed to be too complex or costly for under-resourced and overstretched health care systems that have limited capacity. Despite this, a consensus has emerged about the interventions needed to scale back maternal mortality and there are good examples (historical and contemporary) of what are often achieved within a comparatively short period of time . The activities of both grassroots organizations and international health and development agencies have helped to create political will and momentum. Further progress in improving maternal health would require outspoken and determined champions from within the health system and therefore the medical profession , particularly the obstetricians and gynaecologists, and from among decision-makers and politicians. But additionally , substantial and long-term funding—by governments and by donor agencies—is an important and still missing component.
