In spite of providing facility for free immunization to the pregnant mothers, only 32.4% of ST mothers (lowest among all social groups) received advice about where to go if they experienced pregnancy complications.
1) What could be the reasons attributing to it?
2) What interventions would be required to achieve 100% coverage of immunisation of pregnant mothers amongst tribals?
3) What can be the role of various Ministries, agencies (of Government and Non-government) to achieve 100% coverage of immunisation.

We solicit some sharing of experiences and suggestions on the subject.

More details on the subject can be found here.

Will our government learn from the example of Colombia, which is a developing country at about the same ladder in terms of economic development as India yet has achieved universal health protection and is one of the most notable cases of recent progress in this sphere in Latin America? The Colombian health system is based on the principle of "universality", which means that all citizens are obliged to join one of two insurance schemes: contributory plan for employees & subsidized one for poor.
