Abstract EN

The optimal wellbeing and health of mother and child has been regarded as one of the global public health priorities owing to their vulnerable nature in the different settings.

However, the ground reality is quite alarming with more than 5.

2 million deaths being reported in under-five-year age-group.

Even on the maternal front, the existing trends of maternal mortality and the progress which we have made, it is quite obvious that we will miss the global target by more than 1 million lives.

The need of the hour is to accelerate the progress and this can happen only if the individual nation sets their own targets and formulate tailor-made strategies which will be successful in their own settings to accomplisha reduction in maternal and child deaths.

In conclusion, a lot needs to be done to improve the maternal and child survival estimates and it will essentially require a collaborative approach from the concerned stakeholders and sectors.
