Interpretation

Maternal mortality remains very high and appears to have declined by only a quarter between 1990 and 2000 (between 740 - 540). With this slow performance it appears that the goal of improving maternal health by way of reducing maternal mortality rate by three quarters by 2015 may not be achieved.
