Support Moms Around the World

1. Every minute a woman dies in childbirth somewhere in the world and almost all of them are preventable.
2. Every year, the world loses $15 billion in productivity because of maternal death. It would only cost $6 billion to provide the health services to save women's lives.
3. Help prevent maternal death, and declare yourself an American for UNFPA:
Call-to-action video from the President of Americans for UNFPA Anika Rahman:
Her commitment to women’s health and safe motherhood is personal—she experienced severe complications when she gave birth at the age of 38. Since she had access to quality care in the U.S., she and her 5-year-old daughter are healthy and alive today.
