We are conscious of the enormous implementation challenges ahead. 22 States have so far demonstrated interest. Baseline assessments, State and facility level training and a performance management system all have to be in place in the next couple of months.

I am also hopeful that death during childbirth will be a thing of the past, and our children will no longer have to die as a result of vaccine-preventable diseases or other common ailments. Also, access to health care will not be limited because of not having money to pay.
