My Ph.D. project examines the legal framework regulating the production and use of maternal mortality data, mainly in Ethiopia. Focusing on a newly introduced public health intervention (called Maternal Death Surveillance and Response) as a case study, it probes the interface between human rights law and public health measures in addressing preventable maternal mortality.
