The Role of Pregnancy Outcomes in the Maternal Mortality Rates of Two Areas in Matlab, Bangladesh

Matlab, a rural subdistrict of Bangladesh, is well known for its Demographic Surveillance System (DSS) and its Maternal Child Health Family Planning (MCH-fp) project, which provides intensive family planning and maternal and child health services in half of the area covered by the DSS. The other half, known as the comparison area, receives the normal government services, which are similar to those in the MCH-family planning area but of lower quality and intensity. Moreover, these services do not include safe motherhood care, which may significantly improve maternal health.
