    Saving Mothers, Giving Life (SMGL) is a 5-year initiative designed to aggressively reduce deaths related to pregnancy and childbirth through a comprehensive approach that strengthens maternal health services in high mortality settings.

    The Phase 1 pilot year of the initiative resulted in sharp reductions in maternal mortality in the eight pilot districts in Uganda and Zambia. The improvements in health facility infrastructure and access to, availability of, and quality of maternity care in the participating districts saved the lives of many women who experienced major obstetric complications. SMGL also contributed to lower rates of stillbirths in these districts.

    This report was prepared by staff of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the US Government, located both at CDC headquarters and in the Uganda and Zambia CDC country offices.
