New Delhi: 9th April 2012
Less than two in 10 women in India received medical attention by a qualified professional in 2010 while delivering at home. Contrary to popular belief, fewer women in urban India received medical attention while delivering at home than in rural India — 10.8% against 16.2%. Nearly 1 in 4 births overall were attended by “untrained functionaries” — varying from as high as 53.5% in Jharkhand to as low as 0.2% in Kerala.
