Implementation of Kangaroo Mother Care in District Hospitals in India


Under the Scaling Up Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCH+A) Interventions project, also known as “Vriddhi,” JSI provided technical assistance on rolling out Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) in government district hospitals in high priority districts. This brief highlights the project's efforts to establish demonstration models for KMC within larger scale health facilities. Included is JSI’s approach for providing technical assistance on KMC roll out, as well as the strategic areas for system strengthening, impact, and lessons.

Vriddhi is a USAID-supported initiative to support the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, National Health Mission, and state governments to scale up high-impact RMNCH+A interventions in six states in Northern India. John Snow India Private Limited. 2016.
