Resumen Maternal mortality is very high in developing countries. This report explains how it can be reduced by action at the workplace. It argues that while decent work and poverty reduction are key to improving the health of women everywhere, social health protection is essential to protect women and their families against the financial burden of maternal health care. Social health protection provides financial accessibility to health care services. Main topics covered in this booklet: reality and reasons for maternal mortality; improving maternity protection and health through the workplace; implementing, extending and improving social health protection; promoting decent work for health workers. An appendix lists the countries having ratified various international labour standards with particular relevance to maternity and to health workers.
