    Every two minutes, a woman dies in childbirth.Deaths during childbirth are particularly challenging to address because problems that arise in childbirth create emergency situations with a narrow window of a few minutes to a few hours to intervene. Solving this problem requires effective preventive measures or treatments provided rapidly to women and newborns, often at home or in rural clinics. A new landmark initiative, Saving Lives at Birth is setting the stage for groundbreaking prevention and treatment approaches for women and newborns, including family planning and nutritional interventions, in rural, low-resource settings.
