The Home Based Newborn Care Plus (HBNC+) program of the National Health Mission (NHM) of India is one of the many initiatives aimed to reduce maternal and infant mortality rates (MMR & IMR). A key element of this program is periodic home visits by Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs) every quarter until the first birthday of an infant where they perform a checklist of healthcare procedures to ensure healthy mothers and babies.
- 20,000 Trained ASHA Worker Entered Infant Data
- 4 Major States covered In CHI
- 800,000 Home Visits Data Entered every Month
High Infant Morbidity and Mortality
An estimated 6.3 million children under 15 years of age died in 2017, or 1 every 5 seconds. With these numbers, Infant deaths in India remained the highest in the world.
The main causes are High Rates of Pneumonia and Diarrhea. Inadequate knowledge of mothers / families on Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) and child rearing practices.
Monitoring Structured Home visits by ASHAs
HBNC+ is an innovation being tried out under Norway India Partnership Initiative and is being implemented in 13 districts of the country in the four states of Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha and Rajasthan. ASHA (Accredited Social Health Activist) goes to conduct structured home visitation at 3,6,9 and 12 months of child birth.
All the visits by ASHAs are monitored and tracked in the system. HBNC+ facilitates real time Data Entry. A user can enter data via any Mobile/ Computer device. The data of every household is entered into the system along with the details of new born children. Follow up reminder messages are sent to the parents as well for tracking of Low Birth Weight babies.
