High ma­ter­nal mor­tal­ity

ChinAfrica - - Africa Report -

Kenya’s ma­ter­nal mor­tal­ity still re­mains high. There are 488 deaths out of ev­ery 100,000 live births, ac­cord­ing to the World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion (WHO). The global av­er­age is 216. Although this is be­low that of the WHO’S Sub-sa­ha­ran Africa fig­ures of 640 deaths, most of these deaths in Kenya are neona­tal that can oth­er­wise be eas­ily pre­vented.
