Disrespect and abuse during facility-based childbirth in four PHCUs in two regions of Ethiopia – Baseline Study Findings

  • Published 2014

Abstract

Background Complications from pregnancy and childbirth are the leading cause of mortality and morbidity for women of reproductive age in developing countries. Ethiopia has one of the highest maternal mortality ratios (MMR) in the world at 497 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births (Kassebaum et al. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736(14)60696-6). Maternal deaths can largely be prevented if deliveries are attended in a timely manner by skilled professionals at a well-equipped facility.
