Showing concern on the increasing tempo of the population, health minister said that it has turned out to be the biggest problem facing by the Indian societies today. Hence, the Union health and family welfare ministry has taken a step forward for constraining this mounting pace of populace in the country.
Previously, on World Population Day (July 11), Shri J P Nadda, Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare had announced about starting a new mission for directing family planning project in different states and had given directions to the Ministry to build up a stratagem within 3 months targeting the susceptible districts in the country and develop a new family planning service.
Following this direction, the Health Ministry of India is going to inaugurate its new family planning mission called ‘Mission Parivar Vikas’ within next three months in 145 districts of India.
The included 145 districts belong to seven centered and high TFR states like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, and Assam. These states have the highest total fertility rates in all through the country. As per the reports of Indian Heath Ministry, these districts constitute 44% of the entire population of the country and so considering their increasing pace of population, Indian Union Ministry has decided to implement a new family planning mission called ‘Mission Parivar Vikas’.
This mission is completely intended to quicken access to practical family planning strategies on the basis of information, data, strong management and services inside a rights-based structure.
The key vital focus of this activity will be on enhancing access to contraceptives through conveying guaranteed services, dovetailing with new limited-time family plans, delivering service guaranty, building up limits for family growth, and close monitoring of the improvements and decrement of the populace, throughout the operation.
