Around 800 maternal deaths occur daily accross the globe, the majority in humanitarian crises. As of October 2020, there were more than 850,000 Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and 52 per cent of them were women and girls. Despite considerable national and international aid women are still dying from preventable causes, such as obstetric haemorrhage and complications related to pregnancy-induced hypertension.
Objectives: To highlight the challenges contributing to maternal mortality in the context of the Rohingya crisis in Bangladesh and provide insight into the primary focuses of the humanitarian response to improve maternal health outcomes. Review of the existing literature on sexual and reproductive health matters in the context of the Rohingya crisis between 2017 and 2020 using searches of PubMed and Google Scholar.
The women and girls living in these camps have limited access to health care due to a complex combination of trauma, gender inequality and violence making it challenging
to address their needs.
An emphasis on outreach activities, especially a focus on educating male leaders and influential female figures in the communities is a way forward. The provision of safe abortion care, an investment in the education of qualified birth attendants, such as midwives, and a stronger referral pathway to provide caesarean sections and blood transfusions are priorities for better maternal health outcomes in the Rohingya refugee camps of Bangladesh.
