ITANAGAR, Oct 26: Arunachal Pradesh has registered a significant decline in Infant Mortality Rate (IMR). According to the SRS (Sample Registration System) bulletin released on October, the Infant Mortality Rate of Arunachal Pradesh has declined from 37 per 1000 live births in 2018 to 29 per 1000 live births in 2019.
The results signify that the strategic approach of the Government of India and the efforts of State Government on Health through various initiatives including strengthening of service delivery; quality assurance; RMNCH+A; human resources, community processes; information and knowledge; drugs and diagnostics, and supply chain management has helped in the remarkable achievements in merely one year, said DD (IEC) National Health Mission, O. Thamphang.
The Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) which is widely accepted as a crude indicator of the overall health scenario of a country or a region, is defined as the infant deaths (less than one year) per thousand live births in a given time period and for a given region.
Arunachal Pradesh has also earned the distinction as one of the better performing states in India in COVID-19 vaccination coverage among beneficiaries.
As on Monday, a total of 10,09,000 beneficiaries (77 per cent of total population) have been administered with the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine and 5,18,089 (51 per cent of total population) with second dose of the vaccine, official sources said here.
