Providing and promoting the health is one of the most fundamental human social evolution dimensions, that perhaps more than other aspects of development needs public cooperation. Health volunteers are pioneers who have volunteered to step in providing and improving community health. The present study determines the role of health volunteers in maternal indicators of Pakdasht health network.

This research is an applied, cross-sectional and correlation study. Statistics associated with the participation of health volunteers and maternal indicators of Pakdasht health network were collected during 2010 and 2011. The data collection form was used to collect data and finally data was analyzed by kolmogrov smirnov, pearson and spearman coefficient test.

There is no significant relationship between the number of health volunteers, the proportion of families covered by health volunteers, the proportion of population covered by health volunteers, absorption and loss of health volunteers, the number of meetings held for health volunteers, the number of health volunteers participating in the meetings, the number of training sessions held for people by health volunteers, the number of people trained by health volunteers, the number of follow ups done by health volunteers, the number of extra-curricular classes held for health volunteers, the number of health volunteers participating in extra-curricular classes and maternal indicators.
