Of the 33 districts, a few had more than 80% of deliveries at government hospitals, while the majority saw more than 70% of deliveries. government hospitals made history in the nation by having the most deliveries, according to T Harish Rao, the health minister, on Tuesday. More than 80% of deliveries in government hospitals were recorded in four telangana districts, including Sangareddy, Narayanpet, Medak, and Jogulamba Gadwal, whereas just 70% of deliveries were reported in 16 districts.
Private hospitals typically perform more pregnancies than public hospitals in urban areas. This wasn't the case, though, as the health department stated on wednesday that government hospitals in hyderabad handled 77% of all deliveries in April. In the hyderabad district, a total of 1667 deliveries were performed in private hospitals compared to 5644 deliveries in government hospitals.
"Births in government hospitals accounted for 30% of all births in 2014, but by 2022–2023 they accounted for 69% of all births. This serves as proof of the maternal and child care policies put in place as part of Aarogya telangana, which was overseen by chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, the minister added.
The increase in births in public hospitals can be linked to the State government's unwavering support and significant resource allocation for Mother and Child health (MCH). As a result, when it comes to carrying out deliveries, government hospitals consistently outperform private healthcare institutions that are focused on mother and child health.
