Dulitha N. Fernando highlights some key aspects of the experience of Sri Lanka in orienting the health system to improve maternal health status over the past few decades. She describes the development of services for maternal care, changes in the maternal mortality over the past decades and the inputs within and outside the health system that influenced these changes. In conclusion, she proposes lessons that can be learnt for other South Asian countries
