Gender remains an important social determinant of health, since women’s health is influenced not just by their biology but also by conditions such as poverty, employment and family responsibilities. Women have long been disadvantaged in many respects, including health care, especially the level of disadvantage is greater in developing countries and thus create more adverse impact on health.
Women’s reproductive and sexual health places a unique burden on them. Pregnancy and childbirth are associated with substantial risks to women with maternal mortality which is also higher in developing countries. Ante partum haemorrhage, eclampsia, and other complications are associated with large number of perinatal deaths each year in developing countries. Women who are planning to conceive and those who are carrying baby are recommended to have maternal care to prevent and control any possible disease during pregnancy and delivery period.Maternal care focus on the reduction of maternal, perinatal, infant mortality and morbidity as well as the promotion of reproductive health.
