Despite 15 years of the Safe Motherhood Initiative, overall levels of maternal mortality are generally thought to have remained unchanged, with the latest estimate of deaths standing at approximately 530,000 per year (WHO, UNICEF et al. 2003).

  • This long-standing dilemma over how to describe a lack of coverage in concealed spaces and exterior locations has become more complicated with the emergence of specialized installation standards, such as NFPA 13D and NFPA 13R, that also exempt certain rooms from coverage. Table D shows the leading areas of fire origin for one- and two-family home fires coded as sprinklers present but failed or ineffective because of no sprinkler in the fire area. In other words, sprinklers were present somewhere in the home but not in the area of origin.

The first two - knowledge-telling and knowledge-transforming - are well documented.
