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

    Phase 1 of the initiative resulted in sharp reductions in the number of maternal deaths in the eight pilot districts in Uganda and Zambia. The improvements in access to, availability of, and quality of maternity care in the participating districts have saved the lives of many women who experienced major obstetric complications. They have also saved the lives of many infants born to women with these complications.

    Improvements were reported in nearly all measures of maternal and perinatal health tracked before and after Phase 1.

    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.
