A major new study carried out by WHO and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) indicates that maternal mortality has been substantially underestimated in the past, and that there are nearly 80 000 more pregnancy-related deaths per year than previously reported. According to the study, some 585 000 maternal deaths occur in the world each year, 99% of them in developing countries.
