Guyana MDG Acceleration Framework Report to Improve Maternal Health

In evaluating Guyana’s progress toward the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the Government of Guyana has identified MDG 5 – improve maternal health – as the goal that needs prioritisation if its associated targets are to be achieved by 2015 and thus a higher standard of maternal health care is to be established and sustained in the long run.
