The 5th United Nation’s Millennium Development Goal was to reduce maternal mortality by 75%. The Maternal Mortality Campaign, part of the White Ribbon Alliance, was created to build awareness and pressure for action in preventing deaths, illness or disability related to pregnancy and childbirth.

The Maternal Mortality Campaign approached PBE to find an economist who could investigate data on maternal mortality and morbidity, and child mortality, to apply to an economic argument supporting interventions. We matched MMC with an economist from the Bank of England who spent time working with MMC and looking at the relevant data that exists.
