Ending Preventable Maternal Mortality (EPMM): A Renewed Focus for Improving Maternal and Newborn Health and Wellbeing

View Resource View Resource

This brief by the World Health Organization summarizes 2021 global targets to end preventable maternal mortality.

Five coverage targets and ten milestones towards advancing maternal health are proposed by EPMM

In an effort to accelerate progress toward the SDG targets and goals, EPMM has established coverage targets and milestones to track progress to 2030. These coverage targets and milestones were developed in consultation with relevant stakeholders and partners at national, regional and global level, and also ensured alignment with the targets and milestones launched by Every Newborn Action Plan (ENAP) in September 2020.

Coverage targets for 2025

To achieve high-quality maternal and newborn healthcare, i.e., antenatal care, childbirth care, postnatal care as well as improvement in some broader determinants, such as, gender equality, women’s empowerment, and others, five targets are set for three levels: Global, National and Sub-national. The first three of the five targets are common with the ENAP targets, given the importance of maintaining the maternal and newborn dyad.
