Local communities in Sierra Leone are being encouraged to rate their clinics and demand more from their healthcare services in a bid to cut the country’s high maternal mortality rates.

The riskiest thing a woman can do in Sierra Leone is get pregnant; one in every 21 women is at risk of death in child birth.

Maternal death rates are falling, but an initiative to speed up progress has just been launched with the backing of the UK’s Department for International Development.
