It is fitting that Professor James Drife has written an opinion piece on the value of confidential enquiries. When the then Minister of Health (Minister Dlamini-Zuma) created the National Committee for the Confidential Enquiries into Maternal Deaths (NCCEMD) in 1997, Professor Drife was asked by the Department of Health to facilitate getting the committee and its subsequent reports established. Subsequently five reports have been written, with Saving Mothers 2008 - 2010: The Fifth Report on Confidential Enquiries into Maternal Deaths in South Africa being recently released.
