Reducing C-section Rates in China

China has one of the highest cesarean delivery rates in the world—about 50% of the 16 million babies born in 2010 were delivered by C-section. According to the World Health Organization, however, only about 10-15% of deliveries require this procedure. This high rate has raised concerns on a number of fronts, as these medically unnecessary C-sections pose more health risks for both mothers and babies.
