This article, written by the World Health Organization Department of Reproductive Health and Research in 2015, outlines strategies and components of approaches towards ending preventable maternal mortality (EPMM). The paper goes over social issues that WHO believes should be addressed, logistic issues to consider, and give specific objectives of EPMM programs. This was written during the transitional period from the Millennium Developmental Goals (MDGs) to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and is meant to help ease that transition and to reassess strategies targeting maternal health.
