The 2014 Myanmar Population and Housing Census: Thematic Report on Maternal Mortality

This thematic report presents the status of maternal mortality in Myanmar. The analysis shows that maternal mortality in the country is high at 282 deaths per 100,000 live births, and that there is a need for concerted efforts to ensure that women have access to services that provide high quality health care before, during and after childbirth. Furthermore, about 10 per cent of female deaths of women of reproductive age (15-49 years) are attributed to maternal deaths. By State and Region, maternal mortality ratios are very high in Chin, Ayeyawady and Magway, while they are lowest in Tanintharyi, Nay Pyi Taw and Yangon. Although steps are being taken to provide health services in these areas with high maternal mortality, there is also a need to carry out more specialized surveys to determine why mortality rates remain high in the country and in specific States and Regions.
