Mother and Child Care: the intervention onHealth and Nutrition.
Safe Motherhood in Sundarbans is a program run by Sabuj sangha to decrease the ratio of child mortality and also to improve the knowledge level of mothers and the overall community.Due to inadequate health facilities by both government and non-government organizations and remoteness of Sundarbans, the entire population depends on quacks especially pregnant women.
