The rate of maternal and child mortality is an indicator to measure the degree of maternal and child health in North Central Timor, East Nusa Tenggara which is directly adjacent to the Timor Leste. The fluctuation in maternal and infant mortality shows that the health level of border communities does not meet health standards. The government's efforts are to improve the quality and health services access through the provision of mobile health centres, maternity homes in health centres (Puskesmas), birth waiting homes and placement of midwives in the village. In addition, with the existence of Regional Regulation Number 4 of 2012 concerning Maternal and Newborn Babies Health (KIBBLA), each delivery must be carried out at an adequate health facility or at Puskesmas. Although various efforts have been carried out, but the problem of maternal and child health in North Central Timor remains a separate problem. The causes of maternal and infant mortality are related to maternal health conditions since the process of pregnancy, childbirth, childbirth, socioeconomic, geography, and behaviour-culture of the people which are covered in 4T (too-old, too-young, too-much, too-often) and 3T (too-late in making decisions, too-late in carrying and too-late in getting health service).
