The Safe Motherhood Strategies Project
This CD-Rom results from collaboration between the European Commission, the Institute
of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp University and John Snow International - UK.
In order to further its commitment to the reduction of maternal mortality,
and to ensure that its strategy and policies are based on the available evidence,
the EC commissioned 19 scientific background papers which reviewed the published
and gray literature on particular topics. These papers were discussed at an
expert meeting in Brussels in November 2000.
The papers were published by ITM in book form in English and French and over
4,000 copies of the book have been distributed to date. This CD-Rom has been
created to meet the continuing demand for these articles. In addition a version
in Spanish will be available in September 2003. We hope that this user-friendly
format will meet the needs of researchers, practitioners and policy makers with
an interest in safe motherhood.
