Presently per month, on an average, 90000 Institutional Deliveries are being conducted in the government health facilities in the State.
- Fund disbursement to DHSs has been streamlined to ensure timely payment to the beneficiaries.
- Due to unprecedented increase in ID, it became imperative to up grade the Labour rooms up to PHC level. Guidelines for up gradation of labour rooms have been prepared and disseminated to the Civil Surgeons
- Efforts are being made to recruit adequate number of staff to man these facilities
- Training programmes are being organized for skill up gradation of existing staff
