"Although maternal mortality and severe morbidity still represent a major clinical, social and public health problem, what gives me energy and hope is that it is preventable. The science around what sexual, reproductive, and maternal health interventions are effective has been established, however, there remains a gap in the science on how to do it effectively and efficiently for the greatest impact. It excites me that CARE is working to fill this “evidence to program gap” to improve the uptake and implementation of known effective interventions. Knowing that CARE and others are working to fill this critical gap gives me hope that we are moving closer to eradicating preventable maternal mortality and morbidity in our lifetimes." --Sara G.
