Coordination between community leaders and healthcare providers for provision of maternal and child health (MNCH) in conflict areas is very important because community people are affected both physically and mentally due to conflict. Community leaders such as community chiefs, school teachers and church priests have very important role play in solving community health problems by proper arrangement of health facility from where community utilizes these services. In this paper, we report the number of scientific studies published from 2007 to 2011 about MNCH problem in conflict regions of world. Secondly, we study about the community leader role and communication with healthcare providers to solve the MNCH problem. Co-ordination between community leaders and healthcare providers to improving maternal and child health (MNCH), clinicians and health service utilization improve and protect population health. Overall, there is lack of published information about community leaders' role, i.e., accessibility, affordability and co-ordination with healthcare providers for the provision of MNCH services. We believe that high quality scientific approach must be taken in studies of MNCH with appropriate study design in order to obtain data and information regarding communication aspect between community leaders and healthcare professionals in MNCH programmes.
