This snapshot of health status indicates that Punjab could not achieve the MDG targets. Now that the SDG targets are agreed upon globally, drastic measures need to be taken to improve the situation of maternal, newborn and child health and nutrition status in Punjab which will directly contribute to an improvement in the national status of these indicators. To achieve these targets Punjab will have to significantly improve the quality of services in the RMNCHN sector. Despite the slow progress towards health related goals and other health outcomes, there is evidence that Punjab has made significant level of progress particularly at the intermediate outcome level during the recent years.
Looking at the above scenario, the Government of Punjab has taken a number of new initiatives, the most important one being the integration of LHWs Program, MNCH Program, Nutrition Program and 24/7 Basic EmONC services under the umbrella of the Integrated Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn & Child Health and Nutrition Program (IRMNCHNP).
