New ambulances for Eritrea

UNFPA Eritrea plays an important role in the Eritrean government’s endeavor to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity. Eritrea achieved the health-related MDGs and it is one of the few African countries that achieved MDG 5a.

Maternal mortality was reduced from 1700 deaths per 100,000 live births in 1990 to 380 per 100,000 in 2013. However, this figure is still unacceptably high when compared with the global target of 210 per 100,000. Skilled birth attendance is low, at 34 per cent (EPHS, 2010), thus UNFPA has been supporting the Ministry of Health to strengthen basic and comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and Neonatal Care Services.
