Abstract:

For social, economic, and political reasons, approximately half of pregnant women in Africa give birth without the assistance of a trained midwife. Several sub-Saharan countries are involved in armed conflicts, and it has been the case since 1997 for the Democratic Republic of Congo. That country has the abnormally high maternal mortality rates of 1806 per 100 000 births in rural areas and 2000 per 100 000 births in urban areas. A retrospective study was conducted at CME Nyankunde Hospital, Ituri District, to assess the effects of war on pregnancy outcomes between 1993 and 2001. It compared trends for the 4 years before the war (1993–1997) and the first 4 years of the war (1997–2001).
