The second phase of the SRI project began in June 2013 and is scheduled to be completed by June 2019.
This year, the capacity level of the project staff was further developed through trainings in social mobilization, human resource and procurement, reporting formats and advocacy. More seminars were held to raise awareness among the population about issues, such as dengue virus and nutrition. Healthcare services were provided to around 2,000 families during 2017. 90% of children were immunized, 100% of women had antenatal and postnatal checkups, while skilled birth attendants successfully handled 98% deliveries. Under this project, the infant mortality rate of the area has been reduced to 18/1000 live births and the under-five mortality rate to 22/1000 live births. Moreover, no maternal death was reported during 2017.
