Study of Out-of-Pocket Expenditure Incurred for Maternal Health Care by BPL Women in Karnataka in Public Health Facilities, Department of Health and Family Welfare.
From the time health became a component of a development agenda since past few decades, maternal and child health has been one of the prime focus areas for resource allocation to demonstrate development through improvement in the health of maternal and child health. According to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) the infant mortality (IMR) and under five mortality (CMR) targets for 2015 were fixed as two thirds of their rates in 1990 and a reduction of maternal mortality (MMR) by three quarters of that in 1990. As per these criteria the achievement targets for India by 2015 were 27 per 1000 live births of IMR, 40 per 1000 live births of CMR and 87 per lakh live births of MMR. The targets to be achieved by Karnataka were 32 per 1000 live births of IMR, 32 per 1000 live births of CMR and 70 per lakh live births of MMR.
