Health

The criticality of health is best expressed by human development report 2011 for India in these words “While the education index has pulled up the Human Development Index, it is the health index which constrains its improvement”.  The health status of rural areas, women and SC/ ST communities demonstrates a higher level of concern.

As per a study on causes of neonatal and child mortality in India in LANCET in 2010, “three causes accounted for 78% of all neonatal deaths: prematurity and low birth weight, neonatal infections and birth asphyxia and birth trauma.’’

CNI SBSS focuses on institutional delivery, good antenatal and post natal education and care; and maternal nutrition to address the neonatal deaths. These issues are also identified by National Rural Health Mission as focus areas; therefore, CNI SBSS works on activating and strengthening government health system in rural areas. Along with general education and awareness, we focus on pregnant mothers, and the families with under 5 children, and make sure that they practice prevention and access care while working with the delivery mechanisms of the state. CNI SBSS aims to reduce under five mortality by 10% amongst Dalit and Tribal households in 100 revenue villages by 2019.
