I am a sociologist who has researched health-care policy in El Salvador, 
including the expansion of health-care services to the poor by the 
left-of-centre Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN) government.

As an admirer of this government’s goals and achievements in health 
care, I am struck by a contradiction: It has made genuine efforts to 
reduce maternal mortality but during most of its nine years in office, 
it has failed to challenge a law that may actually increase it.
