INTRODUCTION<br />Maternal health is a key barometer of functional health system. There are however,constraints to provide comprehensive obstretic services for mother and newborn.<br />Maternal mortality continues to be high in developing countries. A WHO,UNICEF and UNFPA had reported an estimate of 536,000 Maternal deaths worldwide in 2005 out of which 99% were from developing countries.<br />Maternal mortality in resource-poor nations has been attributed to the “3 delays”.<br />
To combat this JSYwas launched on 12th April 2005, under the umbrella of NRHM with the main objective of reducing maternal,neo-natal mortality and promoting institutional delivery.<br />It was implemented in all states and UTs with special focus on 10 low performing states (LPS).<br />Uttarakhand is one of the LPS and JSY was implemented here in Sept.2005.<br />There are however various socio-demographic factors that effect the utilization of ANC services and this study was an attempt to study these factors. <br />
