Why the Maternal Health Synapse?

Globally, maternal health care and safe motherhood remain an unfinished agenda. Worldwide, maternal deaths have fallen by 44 percent since 1990, and the overall use of maternity services has increased. But not all countries are progressing equally. Today, over 800 women still die every day due to pregnancy related complications.

The major benefit of using a marketplace approach to solving societal challenges such as maternal health is that it speeds up problem solving. It is an ongoing challenge for different actors in maternal health – those seeking resources and those with something to offer – to find each other and collaborate on solutions. As the maternal health landscape continues to be fragmented, applying this model will become increasingly crucial to solving the gaps in maternal health issues today.
