In India, Madhya Pradesh was identified by the National Health Mission as a high focus state. Madhya Pradesh has some of the poorest maternal and child health indicators in India. The ACCESS Health International team studied the healthcare delivery systems in two districts with the poorest health indicators in the state: Panna and Satna.

This report summarizes the findings and implications of ACCESS Health’s primary and secondary research in Madhya Pradesh and describes the process and challenges encountered while designing an integrated dashboard.

The various phases of the study identified prevalent challenges, such as the lack of monitoring according to government protocols and duplication of data. The dashboard can be a tool to provide data to monitor various processes, outputs, and outcomes related to maternal and child health. The dashboard can also be used to design specific district centric interventions that can be replicated in similar geographies in the state, as well as the country.
