India is responsible for at least 25 percent of all maternal fatalities recorded abroad since the Safe Motherhood Initiative commenced. India's objective is to decrease maternal mortality to less than 100 per 100,000 live births, yet despite its programmatic efforts and swift economic development over the previous 20 years, that target is still far away. Maternal mortality varies among the states due to geography and sociocultural variety, making it unable to execute health sector reforms uniformly. The case study examines national trends in maternal mortality, the delivery of healthcare to mothers at various levels, and the execution of national maternal health initiatives, including more recent cutting-edge tactics.It suggests improving the reporting of maternal fatalities and putting evidence-based, targeted measures into practise, combined with efficient monitoring for quick progress. Additionally, it emphasises the necessity of private sector regulation and calls for more public-private collaborations and policies, as well as a strong political commitment and enhanced managerial skills for enhancing maternal health.
