AVILA-JAQUEZ, Carmen. Decreasing of Maternal Mortality in Peru and Capacities. Convergencia [online]. 2019, vol.26, n.80, 03. ISSN 2448-5799.

This research intends to learn the capacities provided by the public policy of Peru to women, as individuals, their households or their place where they live in order to prevent maternal mortality. A brief summary of maternal health policies over the 25 years of the Millennium Development Goals is presented, underlining the most important ones such as Proyecto 2000 and ParSalud. Thirteen in-depth interviews were held with public servants, academics and activists, among others. The interviews suggested that the increase in infrastructure as well as in deliveries in which culture was respected have decreased maternal mortality.

Keywords : Millennium Development Goals; maternal mortality; Peru; capacities; public policy.
