Who We Are
LaQshya-Manyata initiative is a partnership between Government of Maharashtra and Federation of Obstetric and Gynaecological Societies of India (FOGSI). Through this partnership, we are working towards providing access to respectful and accessible quality care in every corner of Maharashtra. With the support of our strong network of supporters, we are committed to helping make pregnancy and childbirth healthy and safe experiences for all women.
What We Do
LaQshya-Manyata adopts an innovative approach to cater to the diverse needs of private maternity facilities. Using skill drills, on-site mentoring, and digital case-based learning, the program trains private maternity facilities on essential patient care, safety and facility improvement components. The training modules are based on a set of 26 quality standards. In addition, the trainings also enable facilities to learn and use standardized data collection tools, so they can track their quality journey.
We are working towards improving maternal and new born care services by enabling private hospitals (maternity care) to adhere to evidence based clinical standards, and helping them make childbirth a safer experience for women in the state of Maharashtra
How We Work
Voices from our Network
The trainings gave the staff clarity on how infections spread and what precautions they should take to prevent it. Now, I don't need to keep a check whether they are wearing their mask and gloves, or if they are frequently sanitizing their hands, and are disinfecting the premises- they are doing all of the conscientiously.
Before LaQshya-Manyata training, they would get nervous if they faced a complex case in my absence. But now this has changed. They stay calm and focused, while efficiently following medical protocols. Their attitude is extremely reassuring, and has helped me build greater trust in them. I also see a new wave of enthusiasm in my nurses while attending a patient.
Initially, my nurses and staff were a bit apprehensive towards the program, but slowly they realized the gaps in the skill set and started to absorb the lessons from the trainings. Their diligence ensured that we got LaQshya-Manyata certification in our first attempt. This gave a big boost to my team’s morale, they came up to me and said, “Let’s go for NABH, we can do it!”
