In 2016, MMR and IMR decreased compared to 2012; from 37 and 257 to 16 and 167. Family Care Empowerment synergizes all cross-cutting and cross-program activities to support reduction efforts. The FCE stage is; report the newly discovered pregnant woman by sending the SMS gateway as soon as possible; managing reports of pregnant women well by the village midwife; case discussion about pregnant women in WhatsApp group; increased participation of all elements of society; patient monitoring is referred by the Health Office and Public Health Office.
