Réduction de la mortalité maternelle – Dimension socioreligieuse de la sexualité et de la féco

La mortalité maternelle n’a pas diminué depuis 20 ans. Les risques médicaux qui entourent la grossesse sont socialement acceptés. Les déterminants sociaux, politiques et médicaux de la mortalité maternelle sont connus, mais la maternité est une obligation. Les pratiques persistent, d’où l’importance pour les politiques et le corps médical d’aider les femmes à contrôler leur sexualité.
