Maternal Care - Free Caesarian Section

Elective Free Caesarian

The lack of manpower in the FRUs has been managed through hiring of Obstetricians and Anesthetists for family welfare and Emergency Obstetric Care (EmOC) Services. The Government / Private / Retired specialists are hired for the above services at sub district and district hospitals. Caesarean deliveries are also conducted in PHCs by hiring private gynecologists under RCH. The improved quality of services and timeliness of response by the hired specialist in managing obstetric complications at the PHCs and Sub District Hospitals has led to decrease in maternal and infant mortality in the state.

Hence it has been decided to utilize the services of hired specialists for EmOC services for this year also till sufficient number of government specialist are available. These specialists are given incentive and budgeted accordingly. Similarly to encourage the LSAS/ EmOC trained MBBS doctors and also to motivate the young graduates to opt these trainings, incentives (at the rate of Rs.200 per session) is also proposed
