Indeed Julie. This is another example of a condition that requires to be addressed as a broad social problem and not only as a health sector issue. While a well running health system will help reduce unnecessary maternal deaths, this benefit will only be generated if the pregnant women, family members and community after recognizing the signs of complications are able to transport the woman to a health facility. If not, lack of transportation or delays in reaching the facility will contribute to preventable deaths.
