Abstract

In 2005 about one in every five maternal deaths and one in every three neonatal deaths globally occurred in India (Lim, 2010). Two out of three deaths were reported from the eight Empowered Action Group1,2 (EAG) states and Assam, states that are home to 48 percent of the population (National Family Health Survey-3). Institutional deliveries accounted for only about 40 percent of the births – 30 percent or lower in these nine states; 60 percent of deliveries took place without skilled birth attendance and most deaths occurred within 48 hours of birth.
