Mother-child medical facility highly critical in hospitals of Jaipur and Rajasthan

According to a recent survey, out of every 1000 child births in the state, 47 die in absence of medical facilities. They die due to lack of timely or necessary medical treatment. In the country, likewise child death rate, mother death rate is also highest of Rajasthan. Out of every 1,00,000 females that give birth to child, 255 die. Even when government is working for betterment of health facilities making millennium development goal as basis. Highest priority has been given to mother-child. The main reason identified is non-de-centralisation of the medical facilities. Medical facilities for mother-child are provided only in few hospitals of state. In the capital Jaipur alone, the entire responsibility of mother-child medical facility lies only on 3 hospitals.

These hospitals have all the facilities and major devices for better health diagnosis, but long queues, waiting list of several days for operations and several other factors are making even these hospitals unable to diagnosis mother-child timely.

In Jaipur, 9 other child and mother disease specialists are available but in absence of necessary infrastructure and facilities in those hospitals, patients remain uninterested for check-ups in those hospitals and it directly creates heavy traffic of patients in the 3 major hospitals. Even availability of best doctors and modern infrastructure facilities fail to diagnosis the patients timely.
