Dia Mundial Contra a Mortalidade Materna
(Combat against Maternal Mortality). Maternal mortality is defined as the death of the mother during the gestation period until 42 days after the childbirth. The WHO states that the number of 20 deaths per 100 thousand pregnant woman may be considered as acceptable. In contrast, the number of 150 is far too high and therefore unacceptable. In this respect, Brazil has a number of 58, according to official publications (data 2008). About 800 women die worldwide during gestation or childbirth, about 1 every 2 minutes. Every minute, 380 women become pregnant; about half of these pregnancies wasn’t planned. This day was introduced in 1948, in the Netherlands, as Day for Action of Women’s Health.
