Summary The WHO representative in India called his team to discuss the progress made by India in achieving the MDG 5 goal. India, being a signatory to the MDG declaration, was faced with the challenge of reducing its MMR from 560 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births in 1990 to 140 by 2013. As per the WHO estimates, Indias MMR stood at 190 per 100,000 live births in 2013, and was likely to miss the MDG target of 2015. In a meeting with the Health Secretary to the Government of India, the WHO representative shared his concern over the lack of progress made by India towards achieving the MDG 5 goal. The Health Secretary to the Government of India decided to review India's maternal health policy
