Maternal Health at Risk : No Frontline Health Workers or Ambulances

3rd August, 2015 | Hesatu village, Ranchi district, Jharkhand | Nirmala Ekka

Pregnant women and children do not receive vaccinations and nutrition on a regular basis due the absence of a designated anganwadi sevika (attendant) for the village. A sevika from the neighbouring village visits Hesatu, however, women say that she is not regular. Pregnant women in the village have also not received cash incentives promised under the Janani Suraksha Yojana since 2013.

Further no ambulance services are available here which means that pregnant women are taken to the hospital by auto rickshaws in case of emergencies.

Call to Action: Please call Ranchi Civil Surgeon on +91 9431359400 and urge him to take action.
