Last year, I was receiving sign out for a low-acuity Los Angeles County NICU, when I realized that more than half of the neonates hospitalized there had been admitted for neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) monitoring and/or treatment. Moreover, I found two additional things to be striking: (1) the broad range of substances, licit to illicit, that the mothers had been taking during pregnancy, and (2) the prolonged hospital stay for these infants, with some having been in the unit for more than a month.
JAYAPURA, Indonesia — Indonesia has some of the highest rates of maternal mortality in Southeast Asia, and one of the biggest factors affecting the rate of maternal deaths is a lack of access. Local midwives in remote corners of the country are on the frontlines of primary care, but many women in poor and rural settings don’t have access to such care — and even when services are accessible, the quality varies.
Maternal mortality remains a global issue. Despite a significant reduction in recent years — falling by half between 1990 and 2015 — some 216 women per 100,000 live births still die each year. Now, Sustainable Development Goal 3 on healthy lives and well-being is aiming to reduce the number of women dying due to complications in childbirth to less than 70 per 100,000 live births. This is a huge challenge, and one that many countries are struggling to meet, particularly in a country such as Indonesia, where the numbers fell by just 5 percent in the same time period.
