According to the Population Council fact sheet 2015, it is estimated that every year on an average 14,000 mothers die in the country. However out of these 4,500 maternal deaths can be easily prevented through strengthening healthcare system, especially at primary level. There could be a significant drop in mortality rates if the huge gap of unmet need for family planning which currently is 20 percent, is addressed. It is estimated that 6,000 women die annually due to pregnancy-related complications in Punjab, 3,000 in Baluchistan, 2,800 in Sindh and 1,700 in K-P-K.
The aim of the MCHC program is to promote improved growth and development among children under 5 years along with high quality maternal health care through safe motherhood practices. We know that maternal mortality is higher in women living in rural areas and among poorer communities. Our aim is to aware and give knowledge to women’s by giving them every possible help so that no women or child die.
