For a long time, Zambia has grappled with high maternal mortality. One of the interventions the government initiated was the introduction of Safe Motherhoods Action Groups. Clearly, this book demonstrates that Antenatal care, birth preparedness, institutional delivery and postnatal care are important ingredients in safe motherhood. However, knowledge on these tenets is extremely low. Low knowledge levels on various aspects of safe motherhood and the existence and prevalence of complications affecting babies in the study communities reflect inadequacies and challenges in the organization and implementation of the safe motherhood initiatives.
