Maa se Shuru campaign: Prioritizing Mother & Child Health

Prioritizing the health of mothers and children is an important objective of the Government of India. To increase access to healthcare services to pregnant women and promote safe and institutional delivery, the Janani Suraksha Yojna (JSY) and Janani Shishu Suraksha Karyakram (JSSK) schemes were launched and celebration of a Village Health and Nutrition Day (VHND) in every village, every month at the Anganwadi Centre (AWC) was mandated.

However, in Jharkhand, due to existing communal beliefs and lack of awareness, the services were not availed, resulting in a Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) of 219 per 1,00,000 live births and Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) of 37 per 1,000 births. In this context, the National Rural Health Mission set a goal to reduce MMR to 100 and IMR to 25 by 2017.

The Department of Health & Family Welfare, Government of Jharkhand developed a comprehensive Social and Behaviour Change Communication (SBCC) Strategy for Reproductive Maternal Newborn Child Health + Adolescents (RMNCH+A).

As part of this strategy, Contact Base designed a communication campaign titled ‘Maa se Shuru’ and developed innovative IEC materials to promote safe motherhood in Jharkhand through promotion and generation of demand for Ante-Natal Check Ups and Institutional Delivery, with the support of UNICEF, between August 2016 to February 2017. The campaign was directed towards improving service seeking behavior of communities and influencing change towards correct health practices.

The first phase was rolled out in 25 high priority blocks spread across 11 districts. Following research and consultation with the Department of Women & Health, tools were developed in colloquial Hindi and Santhali and included hoardings, posters, banners, wall paintings, stickers, danglers, street theatre scripts for mid media campaign, campaign theme song, short stories, rhymes, participatory games, videos and a mobile app. Skill building workshops were conducted with 79 trainers including MOICs, BPMS, BAMs, who would further train the FLWs on how to use the tools to achieve the objective of the campaign. At the workshop, the trainers apprised the State officials about the logistical challenges of Mamta Vahan and the lack of its availability and decided to together write to the state government to find a solution. Micro plans of the campaign were developed and the activities initiated a positive movement in improving health service access and delivery.
