The scheme aims at mainly reducing maternal mortality and infant mortality rates in the district, he said. To ensure services are provided and health workers on the field remain connected, the Pune ZP had set a closed user group and spent Rs 52 lakh on providing 5,280 BSNL SIM cards to ASHAs, multi-purpose workers and others, Kawade said. "We have a huge workforce and they need to be motivated to undertake interventions that can make an impact under the NRHM," Kawade added.
