MMR in India is reduced by 77%, from 556 per 100,000 live births in 1990 to 130 per 100,000 live births in 2016 according to WHO and Millennium Development Goal (MDG) of 109 per 100,000 live births by 2015. Sustainable Development Goal (SDG3) goal of MMR less than 70 per 100,000 live births by year 2030. The main direct cause of maternal death in developing countries include haemorrhage, sepsis, obstructed labor and hypertensive disorders.
