Joint Monitoring Framework (JMF)


The joint monitoring framework (JMF) is used for reporting on indicators under three monitoring frameworks: the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Health 2020 and the Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) 2013–2020. The Regional Committee for Europe adopted the JMF in September 2018.

The majority of JMF indicators in the Gateway are linked to existing databases in the Gateway.

Indicator notes
Estimated maternal mortality per 100 000 live births (WHO/UNICEFF/UNFPA estimates)
Indicator code: E080120.F

WHO and UNICEF with the participation of UNFPA and The World Bank have developed an approach to estimating maternal mortality that seeks to generate estimates for countries with no data and to correct available data for underreporting and misclassification. These estimates may significantly differ from national statistics reported by countries to WHO.

Source of maternal mortality estimates: WHO, UNICEF, UNFPA and The World Bank.
