Around the world, approximately 810 women die every day from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. The vast majority of these deaths occur in developing countries like the Philippines. Despite progress for the past two decades in national policies tackling improvements in the delivery of maternal health care, the maternal mortality rate (MMR) across the Philippines remains persistently high with a notably slow decline of 2% annually. In 2018 alone, the Philippine Statistics Authority recorded a total of 1,616 Filipino women who died as a result of pregnancy and childbirth-related complications. This number increased from 1,484 deaths from the previous year.
