This year, UNICEFs flagship report, The State of the Worlds Children to be launched on 15 January addresses the need to close one of the greatest health divides between industrialized and developing countries: maternal mortality. Here is one in a series of related stories.

NIAMEY, Niger, 9 January 2009 Aminatou Moukaila, eight months pregnant with her second child, came to the Madina Integrated Health Centre in Niamey for a regular check-up. She's one of thousands of women now benefiting from the recent introduction of free pre-natal health care in Niger a country where the maternal mortality rate is the highest in the world and the child mortality rate is among the highest, and where the average woman gives birth to seven children.

With less than 50 percent of pregnant women in Niger receiving some anti-natal health services, UNICEF is working with the government to boost the availability and quality of maternal health care especially in rural areas and train more health workers to ensure safe deliveries, respond to obstetrical emergencies and provide adequate care for the newborn.
