BBC News Series Examines Maternal Mortality In Afghanistan

Lyse Doucet, chief international correspondent for BBC News Magazine, examines maternal mortality in Afghanistan. “For our 100 Women series, I’ve spoken to Minister of Health Suraya Dalil at Malalai Hospital, the oldest and largest hospital in Kabul,” she writes and introduces a short video of her visit there. She also introduces a special edition of Newshour on the BBC World Service, “guest-edited on Monday by Chelsea Clinton, who chose maternal mortality as one of her key themes” (10/14).
