Odisha to Replicate Family Planning SIM in Urban Areas After Popular Success – The New Indian Express
BHUBANESWAR: Building on the success of the Family Planning Logistics Management Information System (FPLMIS) at the grassroots level, the government of Odisha has plans to expand it to urban areas of the state.
The FPLMIS is an online system that has effectively succeeded in streamlining the supply system down to the sub-centre level with the aim of ensuring contraceptive security to all target couples. Director of Family Planning, Dr. Bijay Panigrahi, said on Monday that steps were being taken to expand FPLMIS in urban areas under the National Urban Health Mission programme.
In addition, efforts are being made to strengthen the delivery of new contraceptives (injectables) to eligible couples as part of the initiative to expand the basket of choice for target beneficiaries at both the facility and community levels, did he declare.
“Comprehensive measures have been taken to ensure quality of care while providing family planning services in our health facilities,” Dr. Panigrahi said. Malkangiri and Rayagada districts were honored for their family planning service at an event on Monday to mark “World Population Day”.
