The State of the World’s Midwifery (SoWMy) 2014 report, which examines the global midwifery landscape across 73
low- and middle-income countries, calls for urgent investment in high-quality midwifery to prevent about two thirds
of all maternal and newborn deaths — saving millions of lives every year.
The 73 African, Asian and Latin American countries represented in the report account for 96 per cent of global maternal
deaths, 91 per cent of stillbirths and 93 per cent of newborn deaths. But they have only 42 per cent of the world’s doctors,
midwives and nurses. Investment in quality midwifery could help bridge this gap and prevent some two thirds of mater-
nal and newborn deaths
