Addressing the participants of meeting, Deputy Commissioner Mr Diprava Lakra stated that it was mandatory to ensure registration for pregnant women in first 12 weeks of pregnancy at nearest health center, anganwari or ASHA worker.

         

He added that the entire pregnancy, till the delivering of baby should be closely monitored. In event of the baby dying before delivery or  after delivery, the concerned officers be informed so that a detailed inquiry can be conducted into the causes of termination of pregnancy or death of infant.  He added that the health department conducts free treatment of expecting mothers at the government institutes and the institutional delivery too is conducted free of cost. Besides this, children of any gender upto 1 year of age are given free treatment and vaccination at government hospitals and girl child upto age of 5 years too is given this facility.

         

Mr Lakra directed the village teams to motivate people for removing gender discrimination.

He added that the main motive of Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao campaign was to bridge the wide gap of gender discrimination and ensure that girls get rights equal to boys. He asked the teams to identify people at village level, who have outstanding achievements in their respective fields and to rope in such people as motivators.  Such people will prove instrumental in motivating people towards gender equality.
