India contributes to 17.5% of the world’s population and nearly one-fifth of the total live births. Its contribution to the global burden of newborn deaths (27%) is higher when compared to that of maternal and under-5 deaths. Around 16% of global maternal death; and 21% of under-5 deaths is contributed by India. To overcome this problem UNICEF global campaign on “Every Child Alive” was launched to Protect the child from preventable causes by adopting 4 measures. Recently, the government of India has also made some robust policy decisions to combat the major causes of newborn death with particular focus on sick newborns, preterm babies and low birth weight babies. India launched more health programs which focus on newborn care to control NMR; also those programs are given significant expected outcome. The mile stones in maternal and child health are launch of- CSSM, RCH-II & RCH-II, NRHM, RMNCH+A, and INAP.
