Edited by Paul Hunt and Tony Gray, Maternal Mortality, Human Rights and Accountability (2013) is an important contribution to academic knowledge on maternal mortality accountability and agenda setting. I say this for three reasons: it gathers well-known experts and authorities working on maternal health and human rights; it produces the sort of insights and recommendations that are likely to result in international rules and recommendations; and it addresses some important contemporary global health strategies that respond to the widespread issue of maternal mortality from a human rights perspective.
