A woman dies in childbirth every 8 minutes in india.

Over 300,000 children die in India on the day of their birth.

The Proportion of women who are anemic in Mumbai is similar to that in rural Maharashtra (70%).

Over 900 million phone subscriptions in India help us improve access to health information through mMitra.
