  1. Notes: Each column presents a separate regression. The outcome variable is maternal mortality ratio. All specifications control for province fixed effects, year fixed effects, and province-specific year trends. Standard errors are clustered at province level. ***significant at the 1% level; **significant at the 5% level; *significant at the 10% level
