Tajikistan Working To Improve Maternal, Child Health

A blog post by the WHO’s Regional Office for Europe discusses efforts to improve maternal and child health in Tajikistan, writing, “During the last five years WHO has assisted Tajikistan in introducing ‘Beyond the numbers’ approaches that go beyond counting maternal deaths or severe morbidity cases to developing an understanding of why they happened and how they can be prevented.” The post describes a recent three-day meeting “organized by WHO in collaboration with the Ministry of Health of Tajikistan to discuss the progress, achievements and barriers as well as next steps” in analyzing maternal mortality and morbidity (8/16).
