"Introduction: Multi Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) method is popular for assessment of health service coverage.
Aims and objectives: To know utilization of health care services among women who delivered in last year (2010-11).
Methodology: Cluster sampling methodology was used to select 30 clusters. In each cluster minimum 8 women who delivered in last year were interviewed for maternal health service utilization indicators like ANC services, Intra natal services and PNC services.
Result: 96.35% women received at least ANC services. Approxi-mately one out of five deliveries was home deliveries and rate of caesarean section was 12.8%. Approximately half of women were visited for post natal care by government health providers.
Conclusion: Iron folic acid consumption and promotion of institutional delivery were key issues. Quality of maternal health care services remains an issue and should be strengthened to improve maternal indicators."
