Maternal mortality is a very serious case and problem area in India. Lack of proper care, lack of trained service providers, over medication while pregnancy is some of the reasons that leads to maternal mortality. Though India has made substantial progress in maternal and new-born care during last three decades. Through strong push provided by National Health Mission through infrastructure development, capacity building, and incentive-based schemes to promote institutional deliveries, Maternal mortality ratio has been reduced from 301 per 1,00,000 liver births in 1990 to 130 per 1,00,000 live births in 2015.

However, impressive growth in process indicators has not led to an expected commensurate decline in maternal and neonatal mortality. In this context, Government of India has released guidelines on Midwifery services 2018 with a motto to establish a cadre of Nurse Practitioner in Midwifery. Six National Midwifery Training Institutes (NMTIs) in India were proposed to establish in the first stage with a provision to increase the number in state-wise as well. Establishing training institutes will not solve the problem, proper training of the trainers and knowledge transfer is equally important. It is important to check and monitor the quality of the training institute, the curriculum which is followed should comply with the internal quality requirements based on the educational vision formulated by the GoI.

To fulfil the objectives, there was a need to develop a system which can track and control the journey. Indev comes into the scene at this part of the project as a Technical partner of TTC (Thinkthrough Consulting). A web dashboard was created for data visualisation on Baseline assessment of NMIT and to create and track curriculum that meets the Ministry requirement..
