Burkina Faso: Giving life, risking death: Time for action to reduce maternal mortality in Burkina Faso
More than 2,000 women die in Burkina Faso every year from complications of pregnancy and childbirth. Most of these deaths could be prevented. In this campaign digest Amnesty International calls on the government of Burkina Faso to take measures to: allocate adequate resources to maternal and reproductive health care; reduce physical and cultural barriers that prevent poor rural women from accessing such health care; provide accessible information to women about their right to health; and, to ensure adequate monitoring of government policy to reduce maternal mortality.
