In 2010, UNICEF joined an array of partners for the Women Deliver conference – an all-out effort to renew commitments to Millennium Development Goal 5, which calls for radical reductions in maternal mortality and universal access to reproductive health. © UNICEF/Chalasani - More information:

CAN YOU SEE ME? Leila [NAME CHANGED] was sexually abused by an older man in her home village and is now pregnant. She lives with her sister in Kailahun District. “I don’t feel good about being pregnant because I’m just a small girl,” Leila said. She has dropped out of school but hopes to return and study nursing. Sierra Leone has the world’s highest maternal mortality rate, in part due to inadequate protection or maternal care for girls and women.
