End maternal death

Toute personne a droit à la santé, y compris les femmes et les mères. Depuis 1990, le nombre de décès maternels a reculé de 44 %. Pourtant, quelque 830 femmes et adolescentes meurent encore chaque jour de causes évitables liées aux complications de la grossesse et de l'accouchement. Presque tous ces décès maternels (99 %) surviennent dans les pays en développement, dont plus de la moitié dans des situations fragiles et de crise humanitaire.

" J'avais si peur ce matin, je me posais tellement de questions... mais je me sens plus sereine maintenant ", se confie Sabekun, résidente d'un camp de réfugiés pour Rohingyas, au Bangladesh. Enceinte de son premier enfant, et après avoir marché pendant sept jours consécutifs pour fuir les violences, elle a pu bénéficier d'un examen prénatal, à l'occasion duquel elle a entendu parler pour la première fois de planification familiale.

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.
