Measure – 02: Register Pregnancies

February 29, 2008

Indian govt. (Renuka Chaudhary, Union Minister for Women and Child Development) is planning to make it mandatory to register all pregnancies. This will entail all rural health centers, clinics, hospitals and maternity homes to register pregnancies. With the information obtained from this registration and updated by following-up on the results of each pregnancy, the govt hopes to get a better information – and control – of infant mortality.

Concerns:

1)  Is it a case of invasion of privacy?
