Through the USAID-supported Vriddhi project, JSI India conducted a landscape assessment of reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH) service delivery in the private sector. The study aimed to collect evidence for a private sector engagement strategy for RMNCH.
Through the Vriddhi project, JSI is facilitating the use of injectable gentamicin by Auxiliary Nurse Midwives (ANMs) in accordance with recommendations from the Government of India. During monthly meetings, ANMs who have been successful in identifying eligible cases and administering the lifesaving injection share their stories. This creates a space where other ANMs feel comfortable discussing the challenges they face and reaching out to experienced ANMs when they need support.
