PLANNING &ORGANISATION OF RCH SERVICES FOR 1 LAKH POPULATION IN A RURAL AREA
I am very grateful to The Super course, as my view is disseminated to global audience through my Power point presentations in different topics. I hope you might have enjoyed.
This power point presentation is prepared based on RCH PHASE-II Programme. Those who have gone through my earlier presentations on RCH-PHASE-I , RCH-PHASE-II &Modified RCH-PHASE-II will be benefited. My aim of this presentation is to help the developing countries to strengthen their activities in their areas so that our ultimate goal of population stabilization will be achieved.
My vision is always to disseminate the knowledge of community medicine to all my public health colleagues without any monetary gain. I hope you will all enjoy & gain a lot. Please send me the feedback.

Reproductive health can be defined as a state in which people have the ability to reproduce and regulate their fertility, women are able to go through pregnancy and child birth safely, the outcome of pregnancy is successful in terms of maternal and infant survival and well being, and couples are able to have sexual relations free of the fear of pregnancy and of contracting diseases.
The first phase of the programme was started on 1997with an aim to bring down the birth rate below 21 per 1000 population, to reduce the infant mortality rate below 60 per 1000 live birth and to bring down the maternal mortality rate <400/1,00,000lakh. 80% institutional delivery, 100% antenatal care and 100% immunization of children were other targeted aims of the RCH programme.
The 5 year RCH phase II is launched in TamilNadu on 2005 with a vision to bring about outcomes as envisioned in the Millennium Development Goals, the National Population Policy 2000 (NPP 2000), the Tenth Plan, the National Health Policy 2002 and Vision 2020 India, minimizing the regional variations in the areas of RCH and population stabilization through an integrated, focused, participatory programme meeting the unmet needs of the target population, and provision of assured, equitable, responsive quality services.
To bring about outcomes as envisioned in the
1. Millennium Development Goals
2. The National Population Policy 2000 Goals
3. The Tenth Plan Goals
4. The National Health Policy 2002
5. and Vision 2020 India
1.To Improve routine immunization coverage
2.To reduce the unmet need for contraception
To bring the Total fertility Rate to replacement level by 2010
Population stabilization by 2045
Program:Comprehensive R.C.H services
Plan :High quality, integrated, decentralized, Need based and holistic approach, CNAMA
Evaluation:R.C.H indicators/Feedback data
For New born & Children
1.Essential newborn care like keeping the baby warm, checking the baby's weight and giving the baby mother's first milk is important. The premature babies or low birth weight babies need special care. Babies with any complications should be refereed to the nearest health center.
2. Exclusive breast-feeding must be encouraged for the first three months. Weaning or starting the baby on semisolid food should start in the fourth month.
3. BCG, DPT, Polio and Measles immunizations should be administered to every child meticulously to prevent death and disabilities.
4. Vitamin A prophylactic for children is necessary to prevent blindness.
5. Parents must be informed about oral rehydration therapy and correct management of diarrhea. The availability of ORS packets in the villages should be ensured.
6. Acute respiratory infection in children should be detected early. They can be treated by cotrimoxazole tablets. Acute cases should be refereed to health center.
7. Treatment of Anemia.
OTHER NEW SERVICES
1. A large number of people suffer in silence due to reproductive tract infections (RTIs) and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). RTIs and STDs can make people infertile. If a pregnant woman has RTIs or STDs, it can affect the health of her child. People suffering from such infections should be referred to the health center.
2. Adolescents are parents of tomorrow. It is important to prepare them for the future by counseling them on family life and reproductive health. This can be a sensitive topic, as it has not been addressed before. Therefore, the involvement of parents, Anganwadi workers, and Mahila Swasthya Sanghs should be ensured

Public health experts should be an essential part of the executive management team and will have to play a key role in our country by identifying the major problems in the RCH programme such as the absence of links between communities, subcentres and referral facilities; shortages of equipment and trained staff at referral facility; and a lack of emergency transport to adequately meet the needs of pregnant women particularly for obstetrical emergencies. Allocation of resources should be linked to states performance as well as to population size. They have to identify the new indicators for performance, and allocation of resources based on the felt need of the on priority.
Active participation of Community with involvement and support of women’s self help groups, village health nurse, anganwadi workers, asha activist etc., will be very effective in improving women accessibility to different components of RCH services and increasing sensitivity to women’s needs. The private sectors role in improving women’s health is very helpful. We have to find out a mechanism to involve them through appropriate rules ®ulations to provide the RCH Phase-II programme to the community.
World Health Day slogan 2005 “Make Every Mother and Child Count”
reflects that health of women and children should be given higher priority at all levels of health care system. Every one is accountable for health of mothers & children. The World Health Day slogan 2006 “Working together for health” reflects the involvement of health care workers to provide quality health care services to the community. The fulfillment objective of Phase-II RCH programme is the joint effort of community and service providers.
