Mission Parivar Vikas
On World Population Day (July 11, 2017), the Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare launched Mission Parivar Vikas to improve family planning services.
The Mission Parivar Vikas’s goal is to give easy access to high-quality family planning options based on trustworthy services, information, and supplies within a rights-based framework.
Moreover, based on the Total Fertility Rate (TFR) and service delivery, the mission has identified 145 districts in the states of Assam, Jharkhand, Chattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar, and Uttar Pradesh as being in high focus in order to accelerate efforts to meet the goals of achieving a Total Fertility Rate of 2.1 by 2025.
In addition, these 145 districts account for 28% of India’s population and have a TFR of more than or equal to 3.
They have a substantial impact on child and maternal health indicators, and they are home to 28% of couples who are protected and 40% of couples who have unmet requirements. They also have the largest proportion of adolescent mothers.
The Mission Parivar Vikas will be coordinated with newly created promotional schemes such as ‘SAARTHI – Awareness on Wheels,’ which will spread family planning information and educate the public.
Further, to maintain commodity security, it will expand sterilisation services by rolling out injectable contraceptives at the sub-centre level and raising knowledge about condoms, tablets, and other contraceptives.
However, Mission Parivar Vikas strives to create an enabling environment through capacity building, with a focus on close monitoring and implementation (of service providers).
The RMNCH+A strategy (a strategic approach to reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health), a consumer-friendly family planning website, and the Family Planning Logistics Management Information System (FPLMIS) will all be used in the programme.
Meanwhile, a rigorous monitoring system will be in place, as well as a half-yearly evaluation of the programme.
The major goal of ‘Mission Parivar Vikas’ is to increase access to high-quality family planning options based on accurate information, services, and supplies in a rights-based framework.
Improve contraceptive access by providing dependable services that are aligned with new promotional schemes and ensure commodity security.
It will also guarantee that service providers’ capability is built, an enabling environment is created, and that implementation is closely monitored.
