Laishram Bina Devi

Abstract: The study was undertaken to understand the knowledge, attitude and practices of Reproductive and Child Health (RCH) services among women belonging to Thanga Karang village of Bishnupur district, Manipur. In the selected area most of the people were under Below Poverty Line with miserable living conditions. It was found that Education and family size did affect family planning and child care services. Most of the respondents were unable to provide enough care to their child due to inadequate health care services in the village, lack of infrastructure facilities in the health center, shortage of medicines, non-availability of doctors and nurses in time of need, lack of health awareness.60 % children have not received immunization.92 % of the infant were alive and 8 % of them died at the time of delivery due to lack of institutional delivery system, antenatal care and poor transportation. Safe motherhood is still a dream for rural women of India. Nutrition needs during pregnancy and post-natal period are poorly understood. Access to safe delivery is equally poor 3 in 4 rural women of Manipur continue to deliver by untrained attendants in unhygienic conditions.
