Andrea Melberg, som er PhD-kandidat i forskningsgruppa Global helseantropologi, blei tildelt IGS sin publikasjonspris for 2019 for artikkelen Maternal deaths should simply be 0': politicization of maternal death reporting and review processes in Ethiopia.

Key Messages

  • Maternal death reporting is highly politicized at all levels of the Ethiopian health system.
  • Death reporting and review practices are challenged by the fact that maternal mortality is used as a major indicator of health system performance.
  • Fear of personal and political accountability for maternal death strongly influences reporting and referral practices.
  • Current reporting and review practices generate inaccurate knowledge for policymakers.
