Many families live a long way from the nearest hospital.
Lack of easy access to adequate healthcare facilities puts the well-being of pregnant women and newborn babies at risk.
Babies are vulnerable to preventable diseases like Diarrhoea and Pneumonia right after birth.
UNICEF is working with the Government to ensure:
- More pregnant women have access to proper healthcare facilities,
- More eligible newborn babies are admitted to Special Newborn Care Units (SNCUs) where they can be treated with special care and attention,
- More hospitals have state-of-the-art Special Newborn Care Units (SNCUs),
- More Accredited Social Health Activist (ASHA) workers and medical staff are helped in treating premature newborn babies.
