Abstract

Mental health has historically been neglected both in the developed and developing world. It was not included in the Millennium Development Goals, the global targets for the developing world’s fight towards better health and development. However, it is increasingly recognised as an important public health concern and calls have been made for its inclusion in the post-2015 sustainable development goals. The 66th World Health Assembly, consisting of Ministers of Health of 194 Member States including Nepal, adopted the WHO’s Comprehensive Mental Health Action Plan 2013-2020 in May 2013. This editorial raises awareness of the importance of making mental of pregnant women and new mothers a priority in the fight against maternal mortality.
