Maternal Mortality Ratio India

Catalog Info

Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR) is defined as the number of maternal deaths per 100,000 live births due to causes related to pregnancy or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy, regardless of the site or duration of pregnancy. Goal-5 of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) relates to improving maternal health. Under this goal, a target of a 3/4th reduction of Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR) between 1990 and 2015 has been specified. Under National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) and within its umbrella, the Reproductive and Child Health Programme Phase II, the Government of India has taken a number of steps to accelerate the pace of reduction in maternal mortality.
