Chandigarh: 29th August 2011
In a bid to bring down the mother-infant mortality rate in the state, Haryana government plans to set up a Special Newborn Care Unit (SNCU) in all 21 districts of the state and a web enabled surveillance system. “Right now SNCUs are operational in only six districts of the state: Gurgaon, Faridabad, Yamuna Nagar, Mewat, Ambala and Kaithal. The state government has taken a decision to open SNCU in general hospital of every district. Number of beds will also be increased in all SNCUs,” National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) Mission Director Rakesh Gupta said.
