TOG News Service, New Delhi, July 11, 2017: Mr. J P Nadda, Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare informed that 'Mission Parivar Vikas' will focus on 146 high fertility districts in 7 states with high TFR. Mr. Nadda was speaking at  a function organised by Jansankhya Sthirita Kosh (JSK) to mark the World Population Day, here today.

The event also saw introduction of a new injectable under the 'Antara' program and a new software – Family Planning Logistics Management Information System (FP-LMIS) was also launched.  FP-LMIS is designed to provide robust information on the demand and distribution of contraceptives to health facilities and ASHAs to strengthen supply chain management. The Minister informed that under 'Mission Parivar Vikas', specific targeted initiatives shall be taken for population stabilisation through better services delivery.

As a part of the new communications campaign linked to the rollout, the Health Minister also launched a new consumer friendly website on family planning and a 52 week radio show for couples to discuss issues related to marriage and family planning, which will be aired across the country. The Health Minister further highlighted the life cycle approach of the Ministry and stated that a continuum of care approach has been adopted by the Ministry with the articulation of Strategic approach to Reproductive Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent health (RMNCH+A), bringing focus on all the life stages.

Mrs. Anupriya Patel, Minister of State (HFW), said that population dynamics have a significant influence on sustainable development. The changes in population growth rates and age structures are closely linked to national and global developmental challenges and their solutions. She further stated that the issue of population stabilization is so gigantic in its proportion that the government alone cannot address the issue and thus the collective involvement of NGOs, private sector and corporate sector shall play a pivotal role.
