Importance & Scope:
According to WHO, every year in the world there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions. This corresponds to approximately 125,000 abortions per day. 4-million babies born in the US each year. In the USA, where nearly half of pregnancies are unintended & 4 in 10 of these are terminated by abortion, there are over 3,000 abortions per day. 22% of all pregnancies in the USA (excluding miscarriages) end in abortion.
The death of a woman during pregnancy, at delivery, or soon after delivery is a tragedy for her family and for society as a whole. Sadly, about 650 women die each year in the United States as a result of pregnancy or delivery complications. Worldwide, the study estimated that 293,000 women died of pregnancy-related causes in 2013, down from 376,000 in 1990. With 99% of maternal deaths occurring in developing countries, it is too often assumed that maternal mortality is not a problem in wealthier countries. Yet, statistics released in September of 2010 by the United Nations place the United States 50th in the world for maternal mortality with maternal mortality ratios higher than almost all European countries, as well as several countries in Asia and the Middle East.
It is our greatest pleasure to welcome you to the World Congress on Pregnancy Summit (Pregnancy Summit-2015), that aims at bringing together the professors, physician researchers, Gynecologists, obstetricians, surgeons, health educators, nurse researchers and students in all areas of Pregnancy and to provide an international forum for the dissemination of original research results, new ideas, innovations and practical development experiences which concentrate on both theory and practices on August 24-26, 2015 at Philadelphia, USA. The Pregnancy meeting focuses on “Perceptions of Pregnancy from the Medieval to the Modern”. Our aim is to aggregate researchers, academicians and scientists from the Pregnancy community and to create an avenue towards robust exchange of information on gynecology technological advances, new scientific achievements, and the effectiveness of various regulatory programs towards Pregnancy.
Philadelphia is the center of economic activity & the largest city in the Common wealth of Pennsylvania. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the Philadelphia area had a total gross metropolitan product of $347 billion in 2010, the seventh-largest metropolitan economy & the fifth-most-populous city in the United States. With a gross domestic product of $388 billion, Philadelphia ranks ninth among world cities and fourth in the nation. The city is also the nation's fourth-largest consumer media market, as ranked by the Nielsen Media Research. The city is home to the Philadelphia Stock Exchange and several Fortune 500 companies. Philadelphia is known for its arts and culture. The city has more outdoor sculptures and murals than any other American city, and Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park is the largest landscaped urban park in the world. The birthplace of America is Philadelphia, the city where the founding fathers lived and the Declaration of Independence was signed. Today that history echoes in the original buildings and museums of the area often called “Historic Philadelphia.”
Apart from this Philadelphia has faced a maternal health crisis over the last decade and a half. Maternity wards have closed in record numbers. While there were 19 maternity wards in 1997 in the city, there now are six. Most closed because maternity care loses money; the remaining maternity wards are all in teaching hospitals, and are subsidized by residency programs and educational grants. They mostly hug the center of the city, with only two maternity wards in North Philadelphia, the area with the highest poverty levels and highest infant mortality.
The report shows that between 1997 and 2004, the maternal mortality rate in Philadelphia is 23.8 per 100,000 live births (compared to the U.S. average of 15.2 over the same period). The difference is starker between city and state, with Pennsylvania’s average at 9.01 per 100,000 live births.
