Inequities in access to quality healthcare have created significant barriers for mothers and children across Indonesia. Specifically, the coverage of maternal health service delivery such as antenatal care and facility-based delivery shows huge disparities between the eastern and the western province. In Indonesia, the average maternal mortality rate (MMR) was 228 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2007 (DHS 2007). However, the MMR varies between provinces in Indonesia. For example, MMR was 104 per 100,000 live births in Yogyakarta province while it was 307 per 100,000 live births in East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) province. The major causes of maternal mortality were hemorrhage and other complications that occurred during deliveries, partly due to the large number of births taking place at home.

The TRAction project is working with the local government to improve equitable healthcare access for marginal populations with a special focus on improving access to maternity and antenatal services.
