End maternal death

Toda persona tiene derecho a la salud, incluidas las mujeres y las madres. Desde 1990, las muertes maternas se han reducido en un 44%. Sin embargo, aproximadamente 830 mujeres y adolescentes mueren cada día por causas evitables relacionadas con complicaciones en el embarazo y el parto, y el 99% de todas las muertes maternas se producen en países en desarrollo -más de la mitad, en entornos frágiles y situaciones humanitarias-.

"Esta mañana me sentía asustada y albergaba muchas dudas, pero ahora estoy más tranquila", cuenta Sabekun en un campamento de refugiados rohinyás en Bangladesh. Embarazada por primera vez, se sometió a un reconocimiento prenatal y descubrió la planificación familiar tras huir a pie durante siete días de la violencia que asola su lugar de origen.

End unmet need for family planning

Family planning is central to women’s empowerment and sustainable development. Women, adolescent and youth have the right to make their own informed choices about contraception. Today, more than 300 million women in developing countries are using contraception, but more than 214 million women who want to plan their families do not have access to modern family planning.

"I had very little knowledge about contraception," said Aminata Kabba from Sierra Leone, who became pregnant at age 15. "My advice to my family members and friends is that family planning is the only thing that will keep us in school when we are sexually active."

End gender-based violence and all harmful practices

Violence against women and girls remains a global pandemic. One in three women will experience physical or sexual violence in her lifetime. Harmful practices, such as child marriage and femaile genital mutilation (FGM), remain pervasive. Still, there has been progress. Around 2000, nearly one in three women between 20 and 24 years of age reported that they were married before age 18. Around 2015, the ratio was just over one in four.

"When a girl gets an education and a diploma, she has a chance to get a good job instead of a husband who controls her," said 16-year-old Saba, a Syrian refugee in Zaatari camp in Jordan. Through a programme at the camp, Saba and her mother Izdihar advocate against child marriage.
