Mobile and electronic health initiatives, maternal death reviews, counseling and health education programs, and community mobilization efforts are just a few interventions that effectively improve maternal health in Sub-Saharan Africa, according to a report by the African Population and Health Research Center. The Center conducted a systematic review of published evidence on effective non-drug interventions in reducing maternal death and improving quality of maternal healthcare in the region. The report underscores the importance of implementing comprehensive interventions that strengthen different components of the healthcare system and apply to both communities and healthcare facilities.
