Ten districts found lagging in institutional deliveries

Ferozepur registers 4.7% home deliveries, followed by Fazilka with 4.1%

 CHANDIGARH: “Institutional deliveries under the care and supervision of trained health care providers promote the mother and child health and reduce the risk of neonatal and maternal mortality”, so cent percent institutional deliveries are targeted under Tandrust Punjab Mission said Mission Director, Mr. Kahan Singh Pannu.

He informed that institutional deliveries in the state of Punjab have improved considerably with a record 98.28% during current financial and added that up to the month of October 2019, nearly 3496 births out of total 207848 child births, took place in homes in Punjab which constitute to be 1.7% of the total deliveries.

Pannu said that this percentage is much better to 2.6 % home deliveries in the corresponding period last year. But, we aim to improve it further and concerted efforts would be made under Tandrust Punjab Mission to ensure the same.

Mission Director informed that the data reveals that the highest number of home deliveries to the extent of 4.7% have been reported from Ferozepur, followed by Fazilka having 4.1%, Ludhiana and  Bathinda with 3.3% each, TarnTaran 3.2%, Fatehgarh Sahib 2.8 % , S.A.S. Nagar 2.7%, Faridkot 2.5%, Moga 1.6% and Amritsar 1.5%.

Expecting every district to ensure hundred percent institutional deliveries in the State, the Deputy Commissioners of the ten districts lagging in institutional deliveries have been explicitly directed to hold meetings with concerned Civil Surgeons, District Family Welfare Officers, ANMs/GNMs, Senior Medical Officers and other stakeholders like Anganvadi workers/ helpers and Asha workers to focus on pockets lacking in awareness on the issue and ensure that their district achieves hundred percent child births in health institutions, he informed.
