 A price too high to bear: The Costs of Maternal Mortality  to Families and Communitie

No woman should die during pregnancy and childbirth.  Unfortunately Kenya has not yet made  significant progress in reducing the maternal mortality rate, which at last count was 360 maternal deaths per 100,000 births.  Over the last 20 years, this rate has only come down by ½ of one percent per year.   With 2015 rapidly approaching, there is so little time left for Kenya to accelerate its  progress on MDG 5.

Before we could only guess at the devastating toll that all of these tragic maternal deaths take on surviving families and children. A Price Too High to Bear documents those costs – emotional as  well as financial – with both hard facts and heart-breaking stories.  A mother's death begins a  chain of disruption, economic loss, and pain that, far too often, leads to the death of her baby, loss  of educational and life opportunities for her surviving children, and a deepening cycle of poverty  for her family.

The Kenyan government is committed to eliminating preventable maternal deaths, both as a  health goal and because of its broader implications for the well-being of Kenya's families and  communities. We know what must be done.  We must ensure that women have access to quality  maternal health care; it is their constitutional right and we must do all that we can to ensure that those rights are fulfilled.
