If the services have to be strengthened, flow of information is to be ensured to the service providers. The Maternal Mortality Rate in the operational area is not very satisfactory. During the PRA, the villagers insisted the need for the training of Dais and so Dai training was arranged so as to ensure the information flow to the service providers. Dai training is being arranged by the Health Department. In order to ensure 100% registration of pregnancies, an incentive of Rs. 15 is given to the Dai, she has to fill up the format provided to her and give one copy to the Sector supervisor health and the other copy to the concern FNGO and third copy for her reference and follow up.

 Immunization Campaign: -

During the fact-finding exercise, it came into picture that only 30% registration of the pregnant ladies was taking place in the villages. This was an alarming situation for the safe motherhood and child care interventions. During interaction the women also stressed much on the need of health interventions. Based on the need expressed by the community, Immunization campaign was initiated in the field and 2 rounds of immunization campaign were successfully completed in a space of one month.  During the first round of the campaign the beneficiary was provided with a card so as to keep a record for the follow up.  As the health department played a vital role, this campaign was successful. Nearly 14,393 in the 1st phase and 14925 in the 2nd phase women aging between 15-45 years covered under Tetanus toxide immunization drive against the total survey of 16000 women.
