Abstract

Reviewing maternal and perinatal deaths and telling the story of how individual women and babies died is essential in understanding why women/ babies could have died. The process explores gaps within and outside the health facility and those outside the health facility, that could have contributed to the deaths of pregnant women and/ or their babies. Addressing these gaps will subsequently lead to reduction in numbers of women/ babies dying from pregnancy related causes. This report provides information on what has been achieved in terms of learning from maternal and perinatal death reviews and provides hints on what more has to be done to hasten progress towards reduction of preventable maternal and perinatal deaths in Uganda.
