INTRODUCTION: Maternal Mortality and Infant Mortality Reduction has been a goal of several International and National Welfare programmes for more than 2 decades now. Most of the maternal and neonatal morbidities are avoidable by applying very basic principles to our day to day practice and by revisiting the basic practices. Revitalization of partograph is one of them, which in spite of being very helpful to avoid the maternal and neonatal complications related with prolonged and obstructed labour; not being utilized properly. OBSERVATIONS: WHO has long back labeled Partograph as an essential tool to prevent maternal and neonatal complications, still its use does not seem to be worldwide. By reviewing the literature it has been observed that main hindrance in the use of this useful tool is related with the management and administration issues including logistic problems, shortage of staff, training and supervision inadequacy and inadequate attention being given to its inclusion as an essential labour monitoring tool starting from the learning periods of Nurses and Doctors.
