India's MMR in the last few years has declined at an accelerated pace to reach 130 per one lakh live births in 2014-16. This means we save more than 30 mothers every day, Patel added.
Patel further stated that under the National Health Mission (NHM) a "continuum of care" approach is employed to ensure the best possible health outcomes for women throughout their reproductive life-cycle.
