A small decrepit building nestled in tall weeds watches over an abandoned compound; its doors rotting and walls consumed by spider webs. Till not very long ago, this three-room building used to be Kudwa Dilip Nagar’s health sub-centre. It still is, officially. Only it no longer serves the purpose it was supposed to: offer services for safe delivery to the village’s women. “The place was used as a delivery centre earlier, but for over one and a half years, it has not been used,” says Sankesar, who lives nearby. The Mother and Child Health section of the local PHC, which stands some hundred yards away, is not functional either.
