    The quality of obstetric care is critical for maintaining the safety and health of mothers and their children. In 1989, the World Health Organization announced four priorities in terms of promoting the safety and health of mother and child: (1) improving the social status of women; (2) making prenatal health care available to all mothers; (3) providing necessary obstetric care to all high risk pregnant women; and (4) making it possible for all couples to practice family planning. In September 1990, the World Summit Meeting on Children published two important documents: the World Declaration on the Survival, Protection and Development of Children and the Action Plan for the 1990's. Prime Minister Li Peng of China demonstrated our commitment by signing the two documents in March 1991. It has been four years since March 1992, when China's State Council issued the Development Plan for Chinese Children in the 1990s.
