The Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) initiative, launched at the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning, aims to enable 120 million additional women to use modern contraceptive methods by 2020 in the world’s 69 poorest countries. It will require almost doubling the pre-2012 annual growth rate of modern contraceptive prevalence rat

The objective of this study is to provide a model-based method of estimating maternal mortality at the subnational level and illustrate its use in estimating
maternal mortality rates (MMrates) and maternal mortality ratios (MMRs) in all 64 districts of Bangladesh.
