Anganwadi Services under ICDS

Background

Only 61% pregnant women were registered for Antenatal Care (ANC) and Supplementary Nutrition Programme (SNP) within the first trimester. However, once registered nearly 95% of the women get covered under SNP. The main challenge faced by the district was to ensure that more pregnancies are registered within the first trimester.

Implementation

With the launch of scheme Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana, a grant of `5,000 in three instalments is provided – aimed at improving health seeking outcomes of women during pregnancy. To ensure effective implementation of PMMVY, training was given to Anganwadi workers, special door-to-door awareness campaigns were conducted by them, along with tracking vulnerable groups.

Impact

Since the launch of the programme, early registrations have gone up to 63.4%, and coverage of lactating mothers has gone up to 96.51%.
