拯救亚洲的母亲

曼谷——因为人们都在谈论即将到来的“亚洲世纪”,你可能认为该地区已经超越了往往被视为贫困国家才会面对的卫生难题,如高产妇死亡率。但现实情况却完全不是如此。

2015年,整个亚太地区估计有85,000 名妇女死于与怀孕和生产相关的并发症——占全球孕产妇总死亡人数的28%。上述死亡人数的高达90%都集中在12个国家,高质量的产前、产中和围产护理本来可以防止这样的悲剧。

因为得不到这样的护理,亚太地区平均产妇死亡率(MMR)极高:每100,000例活产儿产妇死亡就高达127例,而发达国家每100,000例活产儿产妇平均死亡只有十二例。平均产妇死亡率超过每10万例活产儿100例的最高的十二个国家包括阿富汗、孟加拉、柬埔寨、印度、印尼、老挝、缅甸、尼泊尔、巴基斯坦、巴布亚新几内亚、菲律宾和东帝汶。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
