  • 3. INTRODUCTION
    The objective of JSY is to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality by promoting institutional deliveries.
    In order to mobilize the community in remote rural areas and urban slums, community based volunteers named as Accredited social Health Activist (ASHA) have been appointed.
  • 4. INTRODUCTION
    Concurrent Assessment of Health and Family Welfare Programs and Technical Assistance to Districts of Uttar Pradesh (CATA, 2007) was done taking into account various maternal and child health indicators
    Since then no study has been done in rural areas of Meerut to see the status of maternal and child health. So this study was planned to see the outcome of JSY.
  • 5. OBJECTIVES

    To see the outcome of JSY in terms of outcome indicators of ASHA
    To see the improvement in the status of maternal and child health care

    PRSENT STUDY
  • 15. Other maternal care indicators which had apparently improved but were found to be statistically non significant
    Proportion of recently delivered women with appropriate number of TT injections (84.6% vs 86.6%)
    Proportion of women who received 100 or more IFA (42.9% vs 48.5%)
    Proportion of deliveries conducted by ANM/LHV (4.6% vs 4.7%)
  • 16. Some maternal care indicators which had apparently declined but were found to be statistically non significant were-
    Proportion of women with consummation of marriage before the age of 18 years (22.7% vs 26.9%)
    Unmet need of family planning (23.5% vs 32.3%)

  • 18. OBSERVATIONS
    INDICATORS THAT DID NOT IMPROOVE AS PER THIS STUDY
  • 19. CONCLUSION
    ASHA has made significant improvement in majority of maternal and child health indicators but ASHA has not been able to make an impact on improving the contraceptive prevalence and immunization coverage.
  • 20. RECOMMENDATIONS
    Cash assistance being provided for institutional deliveries has proved to be a lucrative way of bringing in women for institutional delivery. But it should not continue indefinitely and should be stopped in a phased manner once people develop a habit of going to a health facility for delivery purposes or else the problem of population explosion of our country is going to swell up enormously beyond control.
