World Trade Organization (WHO) is supporting those countries who are delivering integrated, evidence-based and cost-effective care for mothers and babies during pregnancy, and childbirth. Investing in health systems – especially in training midwives and in making emergency obstetric care available round-the-clock – is key to reducing maternal mortality.

Maternal health refers to women's health during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. It incorporates the health care dimensions of family planning, preconception, prenatal, and postnatal care to reduce the maternal morbidity and mortality. The leading causes of maternal mortality globally are severe bleeding following delivery (postpartum hemorrhage or PPH) and high blood pressure and seizures during pregnancy (pre-eclampsia and eclampsia). The world will not achieve ambitious global health goals— such as the Sustainable Development Goal target to reduce maternal deaths to less than 70 deaths per 100,000 annual live births by 2030—without improving access to lifesaving maternal health products. To improve access, the global health community must strengthen markets—the systems, structures, and institutions that facilitate the buying and selling of lifesaving products such as oxytocin, misoprostol, and magnesium sulfate.
