Quote:
LONDON — The number of women dying in childbirth worldwide has dropped dramatically, a British medical journal reports, adding that it was pressured to delay its findings until after U.N. meetings this week on public health funding.

Quote:
The disagreement reveals the politics behind public health, where progress made in tackling a health problem can jeopardize funding. Public health officials are gearing up to ask for billions of dollars at U.N. meetings.

Quote:
In the world of public health, good news can paradoxically be bad news. The more people who are dying, the more money U.N. officials can raise, making some experts less keen to acknowledge that a problem is not as bad as they once thought.

well, no one will throw money at a problem that is going away.

But I'm glad that's getting better. It's not just the saving of lives, but the saving of a mother and partner's life, which will affect the children/partner's lives immensely.
