      This short documentary “The Life Within” is on maternal health and mortality in Pakistan. It highlights the health problems currently being faced by the women living in slums, the reasons behind their problems and the solutions. Sadly to say the maternal mortality in Pakistan is amongst the highest in the world and the purpose of my effort is to create awareness,and hopefully make a difference.Even if it changes or impacts the life of one mother I believe I've done my part ,all my effort and hardwork was worth its while and I truly believe in my cause.

                  En ny rapport om FNs tusenårsmål viser at mål nummer fem om å redusre antall kvinner som dør av komplikasjoner under svangerskap eller fødsel, er det som ligger aller dårligst an. Nesten 300 000 kvinner døde på denne måten i 2013. På landsbygda i Malawi vet kvinnene hva dette handler om. Her jobber jordmoren Mercy Maja døgnet rundt en uke i strekk for å hjelpe de fødende, mens høygravide Aliyasi Galesom har kommet den lange veien til helseklinikken to måneder før termin - for å føle seg trygg på å overleve fødselen.

                    The head of the U.S. Agency for International Development, Rajiv Shah, says that every day this year 18,000 more children will live and 700 more mothers will survive compared to the daily maternal and child mortality rate in 1990. Shah's agency will host a forum Wednesday in collaboration with governments of India, Ethiopia and other partners to mark the second anniversary of the Child and Maternal Survival Call to Action. VOA's Mariama Diallo reports USAID will spend up to $2.9 billion of the agency’s resources to continue the fight for maternal and child health in 24 countries (mostly in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia).
