Even after the implementation of NRHM, the maternal death is still occurring in a good number. Most of these deaths, goes unrecorded. Thus, the main determinants of deaths remain unknown. The purpose of the verbal autopsy of maternal death is to understand the determinants of maternal death and to provide stimulus for action at all levels.

The review will help us to understand so as to what extent the implementation of the NRHM programmes has contributed to improving the quality of health of the Muslims and the Dalit women. This review is supported by OXFAM India. It will be used to do advocacy with the government for correct recording and reporting of all maternal deaths. The district health department should appoint a nodal officer as District Maternal Health Manager (DMHM) and the DMHM should coordinate all services in the district, related to maternal health, including the recording of all maternal deaths with its analysis. The findings will pave a new path to control Maternal Death.
