Table 1 National and global maternal mortality rate targets

From: Ending preventable maternal mortality: phase II of a multi-step process to develop a monitoring framework, 2016–2030

Global target for maternal mortality (SDG Target 3.1)
By 2030, reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 deaths per 100,000 live births.
National targets for maternal mortality
By 2030, all countries should reduce their maternal mortality ratios by at least two-thirds from 2010 baseline; countries with the highest maternal mortality burdens will need a further reduction.
By 2030, no country should have a maternal mortality ratio greater than 140 deaths per 100,000 live births, a number twice the global target.
