However, in Nepal, most women do not have access to basic health services due to underdeveloped health infrastructure, transportation and communications systems.

These factors, maternal, and infant mortality rates are comparatively high. Since the last decade, attention has been drawn to the Safe Motherhood Programme. It is found to be a cost-effective way to fulfil mothers and infants health needs in developing countries.

The present study designed to have a greater understanding on these factors affects women's health and pregnancy outcome. So that, safe mother hood program can be concentrated in the area that are in need.
