The authors review the burden of pregnancy-related infections, especially in low- and middle-income countries, and offer suggestions for a more effective intervention strategy. Affordable, point-of-service diagnosis and treatment, coupled with improved descriptive and microbiologic data, are urgently needed to further reduce deaths from pregnancy-related infections.
