It is being implemented with the objective of reducing maternal and neonatal mortality by promoting institutional delivery among poor pregnant women. The scheme is under implementation in all states and Union Territories (UTs), with a special focus on Low Performing States (LPS).

Janani Shishu Suraksha Karyakaram (JSSK)

Government of India has launched JananiShishuSurakshaKaryakaram (JSSK) on 1st June, 2011. The scheme is estimated to benefit more than 12 million pregnant women who access Government health facilities for their delivery. Moreover it will motivate those who still choose to deliver at their homes to opt for institutional deliveries. It is an initiative with a hope that states would come forward and ensure that benefits under JSSK would reach every needy pregnant woman coming to government institutional facility. All the States and UTs have initiated implementation of the scheme.

Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (RBSK)

Under National Rural Health Mission, significant progress has been made in reducing mortality in children over the last seven years (2005-12).
