Maternal Maps

Death in child birth is all too common in many countries. Identifying the barriers to obtaining care and the reasons for maternal death are the key elements of this project involving Southampton’s Centre for Global Health Population Poverty and Policy (GHP3).

It uses innovative methodologies regarding mapping of deaths, poverty, health centres and places where help can be obtained, for example, in areas of Ghana that are not served well by the health system.

This research is funded through the Economic and Social Research Council/Department for International Development (ESRC/DFID) Joint Funding Scheme and involves Professor Zoe Matthews, Dr Fiifi Amoako-Johnson, Professor Jane Falkingham, Dr Angela Baschieri (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine), Professor Francis Dodoo (University of Ghana), Professor Pete Atkinson (Geography at Southampton) and Dr Pete Gething (University of Oxford).
