Political and Social Challenges facing the Reduction of Uganda's Maternal Mortality Rates

"While there has been a recent worldwide decline in maternal mortality rates, mothers in developing countries, like Uganda, continue to face challenges in receiving effective reproductive health care. Uganda’s maternal mortality and morbidity rates remain high as a result of inaction in addressing physical, socio-cultural, and financial obstacles to maternal health services. Political will, increased funding and social support for women’s health are all needed before significant and lasting decreases in maternal mortality will be achieved in Uganda."
