What is it about?

Our study focuses on how to make childbirth safer for women in eastern Indonesia. We looked at what factors help women have safe deliveries and what challenges they face. We found that things like getting regular check-ups during pregnancy, having a good attitude towards healthcare, and being in a better economic situation can make a big difference in ensuring safe deliveries. This research helps us understand how to improve the health and well-being of mothers in that part of the country.

Why is it important?

Our research is unique because it delves into the specific factors that affect safe deliveries in eastern Indonesia, a region with its own distinct challenges. By focusing on economic status, healthcare attitudes, and other factors, we're providing insights that can lead to targeted improvements in maternal health. As the world aims to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, reducing maternal mortality is a critical part of that effort. Our study contributes to this global goal by offering practical strategies to enhance safe delivery practices and ultimately save lives. This timely information can attract readers who are invested in improving maternal health and making a positive impact on communities.


The study's call for an open innovation and partnership process to improve safe delivery programs aligns with my belief in the power of collaborative efforts. By engaging a diverse range of stakeholders, from healthcare providers to community leaders and policymakers, we can create comprehensive solutions that cater to the specific needs of the region.
