Abstract: Improvement of the reproductive health status of women in the third world is being considered as one of the most important goals of human and social development. Bangladesh has achieved health gains over the last decade of the 20th century. However, equivalent program has not been realized in the area of maternal health. Despite the presence of an impressive establishment of the health infrastructure in the country to date the maternal health situation remains poor. Even through, the most maternal deaths are avoidable if adequate preventive observed are taken. Increasing the proportion of maternal health care services is being advocated as an important step in preventing maternal death.
