MAMTA scheme to care mother and infant

MAMTA scheme to care mother and infant

Mamta scheme is an ambitious project aimed at improving condition of mothers and newborns in Bihar. Under this scheme, trained midwives would be posted at hospitals and sub-divisional health centres to take care of mothers and their newborn babies. The midwives will be paid Rs 75 for taking care of a mother and her newborn. The scheme is expected to attract pregnant women, particularly in rural areas, to go for institutional delivery. Besides, the scheme aims to raise awareness about breast feeding, immunisation and encourage mothers to take recourse to family planning methods. The state government and different executing agencies under the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) are funding the scheme.
