Improving antenatal services with limited human resources in selected facilities of Kinnaur District, Himachal Pradesh, India

In December 2013, the USAID ASSIST Project started work in Kinnaur District with staff in six facilities to improve care along the Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health and Adolescent (RMNCH+A) continuum. Identifying numerous challenges to providing good antenatal care (ANC), staff in Kinnaur proposed changes in the functioning of ANC services in their respective facilities. Through June 2014, the staff has improved ANC services at six facilities and identified 48 women with high risk pregnancies (13 percent) within five months of starting improvement activities.
