Healing the Wounds of War: Reducing Maternal Mortality in Darfur

Zurab Elzarov


Reducing maternal mortality rates in Darfur remains one of the major challenges to the healthcare system in Darfur owing to the on-going conflict, displacement of large number of population, poor transportation networks, destruction of primary healthcare facilities and the lack of solid mechanism to train village midwives. Under these circumstances, the United Nations—African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) continues to invest in reducing the maternal and child mortality rates in Darfur by mobilizing the existing resources and advocating for availability of all services that are directed towards improving the maternal health in the region. The article highlights the positive changes and significant impact that these interventions have had on reducing the maternal mortality rates in Darfur and saving lives of children.
