Peru: Deadly inequalities: Maternal mortality in Peru
Peru remains one of the countries with the highest maternal mortality ratios in Latin America. Maternal mortality could be greatly reduced if the barriers that prevent or delay women accessing emergency obstetric services were removed. These barriers are highest for women from excluded or remote communities. Amnesty International is calling on the government of Peru to adopt, fund and implement a national strategy to prevent and reduce maternal mortality.
