Does anybody have any ideas why the maternal mortality rate in Kenya has increased, where as most other goals have atleast been worked towards slightly?
The main reason is due to the large population increase in recent years. It's difficult to keep track of poverty despite the changes the riders have made!

hey! well I'm not sure, but I guess it shows where Riders works- which is significant, as it shows how in reality (with only 77 vehicles), it can only reach a small proportion of Kenya (even if they are the most populated areas). for example, in the North Eastern part of Kenya, there is a history of food crises and malnutrition, together with a high malaria prevalence rate- so maybe you could say how it demonstrates the limited scale of Riders (which is still, with only 77 vehicles, a big area!) idk if this is right though!

Yes thats true. But more importantlythere is a lack of professional doctors carrying out births and thishas been further induced by many trained Kenyan doctors leaving toMEDC's like Britain (item 3) for better pay, as a result, only 43.8%of births are carried out by a proper doctor leading to a higherchance of birth complications and so a higher maternal mortality rate(MMR). Another reason is that child mortality is also too high; thishas led to women trying to have more kids in order to overcome CMRbecause some of the kids die. As a result lots of regular births canweaken the woman's body and lead to a higher rate of MMR. Anotherreason, is that only 25% of people live within 8km of a health clinic(item 1), so emergency births dont happen at clinics and instead doneat home where there is no proffessional care, so MMR is higher.Another cause of a high MMR is HIV/AIDS, because it weakens theimmune system and allows for 'opportunistic infections' to develop(item 1) which will increase the chancees of dying when giving birth,so a higher MMR. HIV/AIDS has reduced over the years from 7.4/1000 in1990 to 3.8/1000 in 2014, but it still remains high in marriedcouples which is an issue because more pregnant women are HIVpositive form getting it from their cheating husbands who have sleptaround...so the HIV is causing many birth issues and so a higher MMR.
