Despite India’s significant progress in improving the maternal and child survival and reducing maternal and child deaths, yet the rates of progress within states and districts are unequal. The Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, and Adolescent Health (RMNCH +A) strategy aims to improve maternal and child survival by strengthening the health care delivery system and emphasizes the effective use of data for planning, monitoring and evidence-based policy formulation to reduce health disparities.
