In spite of the importance of SBA and EmOC in reducing MMR, there is not much consistency in the existing literature about monitoring and evaluation methods for skilled attendance and/or EmOC. Moreover, there is no specific framework used for monitoring and evaluation of SBAs and EmOC in Pakistan. In this literature review, the existing
