Global Maternal Health: Market Overview

As per the statistics provided by WHO in 2015, around 3,03,000 women died because of the complications they had faced during the childbirth or pregnancy. Most of these deaths can be avoided as the necessary medical interventions exist and are well known. The key obstacle is pregnant women's lack of access to quality care before, during and after childbirth. About 20 million of women are estimated to experience pregnancy-related illness after childbirth.

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.

Global Maternal Health: Market Application

According to UNICEF, India's maternal mortality rate reduced from 212 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2007 to 178 deaths in 2012. The advance is largely due to key government interventions such as the Janani Shishu Suraksha Karyakaram (JSSK) scheme which encompasses free maternity services for women and children, a nationwide scale-up of emergency referral systems and maternal death audits, and improvements in the governance and management of health services at all levels. However, adolescent and illiterate mothers and those living in hard to reach areas still have a much greater chance of dying in childbirth. Adolescent girls outside Indian cities are especially vulnerable as teenage marriage and pregnancies are very high in rural and remote areas of the country.
