P.D. Bharatesh college of Nursing, Halaga, Belagavi, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecological Nursing Organized Health awareness programme on PPIUCD (Post placental IUCD) at Mastamardi Village, Belagavi.
According to a recent analysis by the Lancet, India’s population is forecasted to peak around 1.6 billion in 2048 from 1.38 billion in 2017. It will be followed by a 32% decline to around 1.09 billion in 2100. However, India has been forecasted to have the largest working-age population in the world by 2100. It is imperative for the government to ensure the prioritization of family planning in the national development agenda. Family planning is crucial for the achievement of the sustainable development goals, and subsequent efforts need to be made to improve access and strengthen quality of family planning services.
The success of India’s family planning programme is shouldered by researchers, policymakers, service providers and users, who will need to do their part to ensure equitable access to quality family planning services. Looking into statistics, action to avert this denouement must begin immediately by adopting family planning methods. So to add contribution to control over the population it is necessary for the people to be aware about family planning methods like PPIUCD. We have organized awareness programme on PPIUCD (Post placental IUCD) by 4th year B.Sc Nursing students. Initially brief introduction was given on IUCD and PPIUCD, followed by types, mechanism of action, advantages, Post insertion care and about myths and misconceptions were explained to the women residing in Mastamardi village. More than 30 beneficiaries from the Mastamardi village were benefitted from the programme.
The programme was followed under the Guidance and Supervision by Prof. Dr. Sangeeta A. Moreshwar Principal, P. D. Bharatesh College of Nursing Halaga, Belagavi.
