Research Proposal On Maternal Mortality report in Bangladesh

Maternal death is the death of a woman while pregnant or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy, irrespective of the duration and site of the pregnancy, from any cause related to or aggravated by the pregnancy or its management but not from accidental or incidental causes. To facilitate the identification of maternal deaths in circumstances in which cause of death attribution is inadequate, a new category has been introduced: Pregnancy-related death is defined as the death of a woman while pregnant or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy, irrespective of the cause of death.Maternal mortality levels are a key indicator of the status of women in society. They show how well a country’s health service is performing and what cultural position women hold in society. In south Asia 188000 in die from complications in pregnancy and child birth. This report outlines methods for measuring maternal mortality and presents data for developing nations especially in Bangladesh, comparing it to developed nations and determining its contribution to overall mortality. The risk of dying as a result of a given pregnancy in a developed nation is at least 100-fold smaller than that in the poorest countries in Africa and Asia. Estimated mortality due to pregnancy is 460,000 more women in the undeveloped nations compared to the developed nations.
In Bangladesh most of the pregnant women do not go to the doctors and depend on the “dhai” who are unable to abort the child. For the reason most of the maternal mortality happened in Bangladesh.

A research proposal is prepared to investigate the impact of maternal mortality situation in Bangladesh. The research will evaluate the significant of maternal mortality to the overall country. The type of maternal mortality will be examined by considering some social factors, knowledge related to gender and illness. A qualitative, non-experimental research approach will be undertaken. Data will be collected from secondary sources.
This research is aimed at evaluating the consequences of maternal mortality and overall impact of the maternal mortality. An exploratory qualitative research approach was chosen in order to facilitate collection of behavioral and subjective data. A case study strategy was adopted. Some other background and significant, statistical comparison between Bangladesh and other Asian countries, methodology, research techniques and questions also include understanding the maternal mortality conditions.

The secondary data and associated literature facilitated an inductive data categorization, which in turn derived into classified themes for thematic analysis. The most imperative finding has given by following some strategies. Finally, the research outcome will provide understanding of the overall condition of maternal mortality compared with other some nations of Asia.
