South Africa Far from Targets to Reduce Maternal, Infant Mortality

South African health facilities are slowly improving their treatment of pregnant women and babies, but certain provinces and districts are holding back progress.

Mpumalanga is the only province where more mothers died in childbirth in 2012/13 than the previous year. Stillbirths have increased in Limpopo and the Northern Cape.

The worst district for stillbirths was the Western Cape’s Central Karoo district, where they have more than doubled in a year although the number of cases is still small.
