WHO Country Office, Uganda, was contacted by the Center for Health, Human Rights and Development (CEHURD) on 13th April 2011 requesting for a WHO technical opinion on areas of maternal mortality and right to health in respect of the Constitutional Petition No. 16 of 2011 filed by four petitioners involving two maternal deaths. Other UN agencies including UNFPA and OHCHR were also independently requested to provide technical support and information for the petition. This paper summarizes a factual and unbiased technical opinion on behalf of the UN family in Uganda regarding the medical standards on maternal health care services, health systems and the right to health.
