Maternal Mortality Calculator

The SDG target for maternal mortality is to reduce the global maternal mortality ratio (MMR) to less than 70 deaths per 100 000 live births by 2030.

Calculate your country specific trajectory and measure your progress towards the global target:

How does maternal mortality change with varying levels of progress

Enter the MMR for 2015

Enter a proposed ARR

The projected MMR based upon this level of reduction

Calculation by initial Maternal mortality ratio and Global ARR

  • Entered ARR

  • Expected MMR in year 2030

The MMR in 2030 will be - upon a baseline MMR of - in the year 2015, and an ARR of -%.

How much progress is needed to reach the 2030 target?

Enter the MMR (rounded to nearest 10)

The level of progress needed (annual rate of reduction)

  • Entered MMR

  • MMR in year 2030

  • ARR Required to reach 2030 target

Based on the MMR of - in 2015, the 2030 target is -. This assumes an ARR of -%.
