Highlights

This brief is based on the findings of an impact evaluation of two state government programmes aimed at improving maternal health, especially among women living below the poverty line. These programmes, in collaboration with private health providers, sought to encourage pregnant women to opt for institutional deliveries rather than deliver at home. Despite incentives, the take-up for the programme remained low and did not contribute to improvements in either child or maternal health.
