MNCH2 helped to set up facility-based MPDSR committees to track and review maternal and perinatal deaths across the state. The MPDSR committees are a collaborative forum which monitor, learn the attributes, causality of maternal and perinatal deaths for future prevention of its occurrence in accordance to the national guidelines. MNCH2 supported the training of MPDSR committees. It also facilitated the signing of a tripartite MoU between MNCH2, SOGON and Kano State Ministry of health. The MPDSR was institutionalised by the provision of a budget line and MPDSR monitoring from MNCH2 in June 2016.
