Description - Maternal and Infant Deaths by Sean Kehoe
Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 and 5, created under the auspices of the United Nations, challenged political, financial, medical and civil society leaders to improve both child and maternal health. The 58th RCOG Study Group brought together a range of experts - including midwives, obstetricians and gynaecologists, anaesthetists and paediatricians - to provide an up-to-date review of progress to date and the challenges around meeting these MDGs. This book presents the findings of the Study Group, with sections covering: * the size of the problem * clinical problems and solutions - maternal * clinical problems and solutions - neonatal * training and development * specific challenges in specific countries (Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, Egypt and Sri Lanka).
