The African continent remains to have some of the highest indicators for maternal death, accounting for two thirds of all maternal deaths per year worldwide. Adequate access to reproductive health services - such as family planning, skilled attendance at birth and emergency obstetric and neonatal care are all factors that will help reduce this figure significantly.
The RCOG not only retains some of the most renowned experts within these fields, but is also the lead women’s health institution to set standards for clinical practice and advocate for women’s health worldwide.
