Baseline RCH Survey for RCH-II Project

The Reproductive and Child Health (RCH) Project -II in the state of Andhra Pradesh is being implemented from April 2005 and will continue over the years 2005-2010. The RCH programme is an integrated, focused and participatory program aimed at meeting the unmet demands of the target population. It aims to reduce the infant mortality rate from 59 to less than 30 per 1000 live births, reduce neonatal mortality rate from 36 to 15 per 1000 live birth, reduce maternal mortality ratio from an 340 to less tan 100 per 100,000 live births; and increase the institutional delivery from 64% to over 90 % by the end of the project period. The main objectives of the Baseline Survey are to provide district level data on key maternal and child health indicators such as infant mortality rate, ANC coverage, delivery care, postnatal care, breastfeeding practices, prevalence of diarrhoea and ARI, contaceptice use, child immunization coverage, reproductive track infections and awareness of selected health interventions under RCH-II. Data on these indicators will provide an idea of regional imbalance in the current health status and provision of MCH services. Data generated from the survey will be useful to formulate district-specific interventions and for allocation of resources. IHS was commissioned by the Commissionerate of Family Welfare to conduct the survey in three districts[1]. The study has been completed in November 2006
