Mission and Vision

The RCH aims: To provide maternal and neonatal health services to disadvantaged sections of society; To train nurse-midwives and enable them to provide safe maternal and neonatal health services in the absence of a doctor.

Innovation Description

At each centre two to three nurse-midwives provide outpatient services six days a week and emergency services around the clock. A gynaecologist visits each centre twice a week and a paediatrician visits once a week. The organization has established contacts with referral centers to ensure that referred clients receive good quality services quickly. The referral system includes counseling, transport arrangements, accompanying women, help with admission and support during inpatient care - all of this leading to higher referral compliance rates. The clinics also provide advice related to contraceptive choices and stock contraceptive supplies. Services provided at health centres:
