600 Amrit Clinics -India’s model reproductive health centres- to be opened

New Delhi, Apr 12 (UNI) A chain of 600 specialised clinics offering comprehensive reproductive health
solutions, will be set up across the country under the brand name ‘Amrit Clinic’, which would act as
one-stop destination for availing information, products and services of entire range of globally-adopted
family planning methods.
The clinics will be set up in three phases across all districts in the country, starting with eight
Empowered Action Group states having high levels of fertility and mortality. These states are Bihar,
Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Odisha and Rajasthan.
Health and Family Welfare Minister J P Nadda launched the first-of-its-kind Amrit clinic during
the recently-concluded National Family Planning Summit held in the national capital last week.
Providing a basket of choices, these clinics will deliver quality service of family planning and
reproductive health services, experts say.
The first such one-stop clinic has been set up in Lucknow by Hindustan Latex Family Planning
Promotion Trust (HLFPPT), one of the largest social franchising organisations in India. The
non-profit organisation, promoted by the ‘mini Ratna’ public sector unit, HLL Lifecare Ltd (HLL),
has been working for the past 23 years to improve Reproductive and Child Health (RCH) across
the country.
Increasing access to reproductive healthcare is integral to the goal of stabilised population and
sustainable development, a release here said.
The 5-6 bedded clinics will offer both basic family planning methods (IUCD, sterilisation for men
and women, injectables, male and female condoms, oral contraceptive pills) as well as natural fertility
awareness methods.
Value-added services like cost-effective infertility management services, cervical cancer
screening, information on spacing, personal hygiene, family planning choices, pre- and post- service
counseling and follow-up services will be provided. Some of these clinics will have training teams
and technical experts.
''Amrit Clinic is based on a self-sustainable model and has the potential for up-scaling through
engagement of private sector providers under social franchising approach,'' Sharad Agarwal, CEO
of HLFPPT, said.
These clinics will also promote indigenous manufacturing of all family planning products as part
of the Central government’s flagship ''Make in India'' programme.
Dr M Ayyappan, CMD, HLL said it was a pioneering initiative in the country that would provide
affordable, reliable and quality family planning choices to the people – all under one roof.
