    • About 75% of pregnant women do not get access to antenatal screening.

    • More than 80% of deliveries are conducted at home.

    • Prevalence of malnutrition, malaria & tuberculosis is higher in the region.

    • 90% of population in the region falls under lower socio-economic category, which is why most of them cannot afford to visit hospitals.
