This literature review focuses on the importance of available evidence of successful and unsuccessful practices to assist policy makers in developing strategies for the strenghtening of health care system especially at primary health care level to meet the MDG 5 goal in Asia and pacific region.

This literature review provides examples of lessons learned in the planning, implementation and evaluation in maternal, neonatal and reproductive health at the community level, and discuses important experiences from countries that have made progress towards MDGs 5 and country experiences of scaling up of HRH intervention in MNRH and proposed model practice.[ adapted from summary]
