The battle with Perinatal Mortality (PNM) in India remains still unconquered. Present study analyses the PNM in rural satellite centres compared with the rest of the deliveries at our hospital. It highlights how with institution of package of basic perinatal care, adoption of risk approach and effective referral system, the challenge of PNM could be met. With ANM a key functionary for delivery of Primary Obstetric Care, we have achieved a PNM of 17.5/ 1000 in rural community, much below the national target of 30-35/ 1000 by 2000 AD.
