Principle of Public Health

Learn about the three delays model, which explains why women and/or their babies so often die during childbirth in resource-poor settings. You will look at determinants of health, assess how they influence maternal mortality, and consider how they can be addressed through innovations and interventions that have worked well in similar situations. You may need to do some additional outside research to support your recommendations.
