Maternal Mortality map

Jessica in MO sent me a link to the WHO graphic on maternal mortality rates (it is coded by color). You can view the image here. It is a dramatic visual, because I think most Americans would assume the US maternal mortality rate to be "blue" (which is the best-- less than 10 deaths per 100,000) along with Canada and Europe, but instead we are "green" along with Russia, Egypt, Latin America, and Turkey.
