  1. Increase awareness among community members on recognition of danger signs;
  2. Improve capacity of community members & community level providers to seek medical care in case of complication:
  3. Increase ability of community members to identify and reach medical facilities for obstetric complications. This training programme will bring benefit to a population of 15 lac through these trained front line workers.
