Strengthening maternal health services in tribal villages

After the outbreak of COVID -19, we can see that the health care situation in Maharashtra and the country as a whole has become dire. Maharashtra is one of the worst affected states in the country due to Covid-19. In this outbreak, the picture showed that the health system was completely exhausted. Many services have been disrupted as attention or resources have been diverted to Covid-19. Many non-Covid services have been compromised leaving many beneficiaries deprived of services and facilities as well as improving overall healthcare after the outbreak and reaching the right healthcare to the people on a regular basis. Also, health and other services provided to women during pregnancy and childbirth fall under essential services. Various initiatives and schemes of the Maharashtra government are underway to improve maternal health in the tribal areas of Maharashtra. But due to the covid situation and other reasons, it seems that there has been some break in this. Especially during pregnancy, the services they should get are not available in time, quality is not regular and regular e.g. Sonography, vaccinations and blood tests, HIV etc. are not done in time. For this purpose, the organization is implementing Maternal and Child Health Project in 15 tribal villages of Parwa Primary Health Center in Yavatmal district. Its objectives are as follows…

  • Conduct a survey of all pregnant and lactating women in 15 tribal villages and collect information about the services and schemes they have received so far. To check the status of services and benefits they have not availed and make a list of them.

  • Forming a village group by contacting village mothers, village health committee members and people from the village community. Activating these groups in the process.

  • To understand the problems faced by women in taking service-plans during reproductive period and try to solve them through village groups.
