The ultimate goal of the post-2015 maternal health strategy is to end all preventable maternal mortality. The strategy to achieve this goal is grounded in a holistic, human rights-based approach to sexual, reproductive, maternal and newborn health and rests on the foundation of implementation effectiveness, which is context-specific, systems-oriented and people-centric. Concrete political commitments and financial investments by country governments and development partners are necessary to meet the targets and carry out the strategies for EPMM.
