Ugandan Maternal Mortality Case Adjourns, Prompts Disappointment From Human Rights Activists

Agence France-Presse: Landmark maternal mortality case adjourns in Uganda
“A court case spotlighting Uganda’s high mortality crisis — with an estimated 16 women dying in childbirth daily — adjourned Thursday, prompting disappointment from human rights activists. … After a brief hearing on Thursday, the matter was adjourned to a later date for judgement. [Asia Russell, Director of International Policy at Health GAP,] said it was ‘extremely disappointing’ that ‘after so much time to study such an important case, the Supreme Court Justices had not even one question for the attorneys in this matter'” (9/11).
