'Improving Maternal Health in India', an Oxfam-DFID programme running since 2012, was implemented in 420 villages across 6 states. It sought to improve maternal health status by building capacity in communities to demand, access and monitor public health services. This document describes how the CSOs BGVP and BVHA in Bihar are bringing about change by forming village level VHSNCs (Village Health Sanitation and Nutrition Committees).
