Special Issue Information

Motherhood is the most significant phenomenon in the life of a woman and pregnancy is a vital event in her life. Child health is closely related to maternal health. Women & child are inseparable in care cycle. Mother & children make70% of population & are most vulnerable. In comparison to developed countries maternal and infant mortality and morbidity are high in the developing and under developed countries & large number of mothers suffer from hazards of pregnancy.

There is wide variation in the maternal and childhood mortality and morbidity among the developed and developing/underdeveloped countries. Approximately in developed countries: 50% deaths >70 years & MMR around 30 while in the developing countries: 50% deaths <5 years & MMR is around 480.

There are sincere efforts to bring down the MMR and IMR but for many reasons the mortality rate in the low resource countries are yet to come down to the expected level.

There is a need to focus our attention to find out how best the desired level can be attained.

The research articles in the field of maternal and child health might throw some light as to what is happening and the modalities to tackle the situation.

The articles can be invited from developed and developing countries to compare various aspects Viz. causation, present intervention, future strategy & measures within the guideline of millennium development goal.
