New Delhi: As the fifth round of the National Family Health Survey shows, births at institutions have increased significantly from 79% to 89% at all Indian levels.

In many states, the proportion of institutional births is over 90%, resulting in significant performance improvements. But even in poor performance, it was better than the last round.

According to the survey results, institutional births are 100% in Pondicherry and Tamil Nadu and over 90% in 7 states and UT.

According to the data, 93.8% of births occurred in the facility in urban areas, compared to 86.7% in rural areas. However, delivery at public health facilities was higher in rural areas than in urban areas.

With the increase in institutional births, cesarean delivery has also increased significantly in many states and UTs, especially private medical facilities. Most Caesarean sections are performed in urban areas, but there is a large gap between private and public hospitals. In public hospitals, private hospitals accounted for 47.4% of cesarean births, compared to only 14.3% cesarean births.

Maternal death is more common among the poor and rural people. Over the past few years, the central government has launched various programs such as Janani Suraksha Yojana, especially in areas with high maternal mortality (MMR). The purpose of Janani Suraksha Yojana is to reduce MMR and neonatal mortality by promoting institutional delivery.

The availability of institutional services has increased hospital births and reduced pregnancy and childbirth-related mortality.
