About

JPC1 Maternal, Neonatal and Child Health, Family Planning and Reproductive Health focuses on building skills of healthcare providers for clean delivery practices and integrated Maternal, Neonatal and Child Health (MNCH) and Family Planning/ Reproductive Health (FP/RH) services. Trainings are targeted at both healthcare staff and community workers, and entail the development of modules and training manuals. Efforts are made to integrate training in medical college curricula by training college staff and facilitating them to train others. Training is supplemented with provision of equipment/supplies such as ENC equipment and kits and EC pill packs. Progress was made on contracting out health services, with development of ToRs and bidding documents and award of contracts to implement voucher programs selected districts. ToRs were also finalized, and partners selected, to carry out operational research on reduction of maternal anaemia, low birth weight, and on reduction of maternal and child mortality rates in the targeted districts.

Community demand for and participation in MNCH and FP/RH services was promoted through celebration of Mother and Child Weeks in April and November (plus a special week organized in September in 24 flood affected districts), World Population Day, Community Midwifery Days and other national and international days. Other advocacy measures included TV shows, seminars and school events. As mentioned above, training and supplies were given to facilitate community delivery of services; community resource persons were also used to convey key health education messages. The success of these can be gauged by the fact that 187,000 PLWs visited BHUs (as against a target of 162,000); and the distribution of contraceptives use of condoms was estimated to have averted 175,000 births and use of IUDs another 200,000 births.

 With regard to research, qualitative data was collected on at-risk groups including transgender and female sex workers. A number of surveys and assessments were carried out, e.g. on the impact of the floods on at-risk and vulnerable groups, HIV learning needs among young people, and same-sex contacts among at-risk male adolescents in the street and in specific occupational settings. A study on stigma and discrimination was also undertaken by people living with HIV.
