Abstract


Purpose: this study seeks to find the role and impact of transport’s intervention in the achievement of the
maternal mortality reduction in Ghana. The study used a number of approaches including case study, descriptive
and exploratory approaches, and all these were adopted to gain a better understanding on the role of transport in
the achievement of maternal death reduction. The study revealed that good vehicles and road infrastructure are
perceived as a key link between potential accessibility and actual utilization of maternal health services. Again
finding out the possibility of achieving zero maternal death in the municipality by the year 2015, health
management staff perceived that it is likely to be achieved in Ghana; a little deviation from the report by African
countries’ MDG Africa Steering Group.
