PradhanMantriSurakshitMatritvaAbhiyan (PMSMA)

PradhanMantriSurakshitMatritvaAbhiyan (PMSMA) With an aim to reduce maternal and infant mortality, the government has rolled out a new scheme to provide fixed-day antenatal care to pregnant women on the 9th of every month. The scheme is aimed at ensuring that every pregnant woman undergoes essential checkups during pregnancy to avoid unnecessary complication. Scheme is applicable to women through their third to sixth month of pregnancy. A key feature of the scheme includes services by gynaecology specialists and physicians with support from private sector doctors to supplement the efforts of the government sector. These services include ultrasound, blood and urine tests, in addition to routine antenatal check-up. It also invites the private sector to provide free ante-natal services (ANC) on a voluntary basis to pregnant women, especially those living in under-served, semi-urban, poor and rural areas. Background: India’s MMR of 167 (167 maternal deaths per 100,000 births) failed to meet its Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) target of bringing down maternal deaths to under 140 by 2015. India’s IMR stands at 40 deaths per 1,000 live births, against an MDG target of 29. Only 15 states and UTs — Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Goa, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Chandigarh, Daman and Diu, Delhi,Lakshadweep, Puducherry, Manipur, Maharashtra, Nagaland, Tripura, Sikkim and Punjab — have achieved an IMR of 29 and under.  ...
