The National Health Mission is committed to providing accessible, affordable and quality universal health care, both preventive and curative, which would be accountable and at the same time responding to the needs of the people.
In the past two decades, there has been significant progress in the reduction of maternal and child mortality and increased uptake of maternal and child health services. In order to sustain this momentum, there is a need to provide consistently high-quality care to all.
As a secretariat of SuMa-Rajasthan White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood, CHETNA in partnership with the White Ribbon Alliance India initiated advocacy for Maternal New Born Child Health services in Rajasthan. A total of 18 Civil Society Organisations are partners in implementing campaign activities in 23 districts of Rajasthan.
The activities began in 2015 and the project ends in March 2019.
The project aims to enhance capacities of key influencers (Civil Society Organizations, Media, Members of the Legislative Assembly, elected members of the Gram Panchayat, Pradhans of the Panchayat Samiti and Pramukhs of the Zilla Panchayat) to advocate for quality of care using social media. Women as key influencers were at the centre and their voices were amplified at local, district, state and national levels to demand quality health care and services.
The activities include:
The project is supported by White Ribbon Alliance India.
