According To WHO, in 2015 the maternal mortality rate in Togo is around 300 Deaths per 100 000 births (50 times the European average). In response, Togo lancé since September 2010, the “Campaign for Accelerated Reduction of Maternal Mortality in Africa” themed “No woman shoulds die Giving life.”

 

The mortality rate of 0 to 5 years is still high of 78%, or 19 times That of France. Food insecurity is endemic: 28% of children under 5 HAD growth retardation Because of malnutrition.
