"Maternal mortality is a very complex thing -- it's not just patient-doctor relationships, it has so much to do with behaviors, with communities, with the household, with family members," said Nabeela Ali, chief of party for the Pakistan Initiative for Mothers and Newborns (PAIMAN), which received USAID maternal and child health funding from 2004 to 2010.
Pakistan is the world's sixth most populous country, yet has long held one of the world's highest maternal mortality rates. Ali spoke at the Wilson Center last fall about strategies to better engage faith-based organizations on maternal and child health issues. In this interview with ECSP, she stressed that despite Pakistan's very religious society, these interventions are possible with the right messaging.
