During the study period, maternal deaths were identified and a total of 21, live births were recorded in the study hospitals, yielding a maternal mortality ratio of /10 5 live births. This ratio is more than six times the officially reported maternal mortality ratio for the whole region in the same period. Maternal mortality ratios (–) ranged from to across the six regions. The longitudinal relationship between female literacy rates and maternal mortality ratios was examined using a latent growth curve approach. The study found that rates of change in female literacy and maternal mortality ratios are negatively related.

  Maternal death can be seen as the ultimate and most serious failure of maternal health efforts, and because it is easier to measure than overall maternal health, maternal death (also called maternal mortality) has been widely used as the basis for both national and international comparisons. 3,4 Maternal death is defined as the death of a woman. The maternal mortality ratio is the most widely used measure of maternal deaths. It measures obstetric risk (i.e., the risk of dying once a woman is pregnant). It therefore omits the risk of being pregnant (i.e., fertility, in a population, which is measured by the maternal mortality rate or the lifetime risk) (Graham and Airey, ).
