Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Understanding the underlying factors that led to maternal deaths through a maternal death review (MDR) throws light on the causes, characteristics and circumstances of the death. We reviewed and report on the implementation of MDR in India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal and Sri Lanka, capturing the experiences of MDR initiatives, follow-up actions and lessons learnet. Overall, while the findings from MDRs have been used to design or change policies and strategies for improvement of services provided, there are still challenges in scaling up these initiatives, particularly in the larger countries.
