Title Huge poor–rich inequalities in maternity care: an international comparative study of maternity and child care in developing countries
Author Tanja AJ Houweling a, Carine Ronsmans b, Oona MR Campbell b, Anton E Kunst

This paper describes poor–rich inequalities in use of professional delivery and antenatal care for 45 developing countries and compares these to inequalities in use of child health services. By presenting various aspects of inequalities in the use of maternity care, and by contrasting these to inequalities in the use of child health care, this paper seeks possible explanations for the inequalities observed in maternity care.
