The project focused on preparing a technical report and research paper for peer reviewed publication that would highlight the existing evidence, implementation status of programs, innovation, and best practices through an analysis of health systems and policies from the perspective of maternal care.
The creation of the report aimed to help the country in developing key strategies for improving maternal health and align it with the country objectives as outlined in the Global Strategy for Women, Adolescents and Children. It also aimed to identify roadblocks to reduce maternal mortality in the county and help advocate for stakeholders to mainstream the agenda for Ending Preventable Maternal Mortality (EPMM) and maternal health related SGD targets in to their respective programmes.
Researched and documented the existing evidence on programs, initiatives, policies, and practices undertaken for providing or improving maternal health care services.
Prepared two technical papers highlighting:
State of mother in India and providing continuum of care for mother in the country under the perspective of ensuring QED (Quality, Equity, Dignity)
