Abstract:
India accounts for 20% of the maternal deaths around the whole world. In fact, at present the maternal mortality ratio is 178 (2013 SRS), and as per historical trends it had to be 140 in 2015 and as such has missed the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) target of 107. The main focus of this study is to examine the level of awareness among the women living in the slum areas about the JSY scheme and to find out the reasons for not opting institutional delivery from those who have delivered in their homes. A total of 130 women who have delivered within the two years i.e. from Jan. 2014-Dec. 2015 were interviewed using an interview schedule. The study is primarily based on primary data collected from a field survey in the slum areas of district Kathua. The important results of the study reveal that that the 65% of the respondents had delivered their last baby in the public health facility and still 35% of them had delivered at home. Only 65% of the total 130 women had awareness about the JSY scheme. The main source of the awareness was AWW workers among the women. The women who are literate, housewives, and are in the age group of 20-24 years were more aware about the JSY scheme. The study concludes that there is a gap regarding the awareness level of JSY scheme would be increased by using the community interaction programmes.
