Post-Partum Hemorrhage is the first cause of maternal death.
Birth Asphyxia is the main cause of perinatal death.

Ethiopia’s maternal mortality rate is still so high, estimated to be around 412 mothers died for every 100,000 live births , it does it mean around 11000 maternal deaths every year.

46 newborns dead before 28 days of life for every 1000 births, it means around 87000 neonatal deaths and 97000 still births every year.

Most of them are avoidable and preventable deaths.
