LaQshya is a quality improvement initiative which aims to ensure Quality of Care during intrapartum and immediate post-partum period in Labour Room and Maternity OT. It targets all Government Medical College Hospitals, District Hospitals & equivalent health facilities, designated FRUs as well as high case load CHCs.

A total of 283 obstetric high dependency unit (HDU) /Intensive care unit (ICU) have been approved in high caseload tertiary care facilities including Government Medical College hospitals and district hospitals, across the country.

All the targeted facilities (which include 2660 Labour Rooms and 1989 Maternity Operation Theatres) for LaQshya certification and certified facilities under the LaQshya programme conduct the sensitization/ orientation of the latest Labour Room protocols.

Under the purview of LaQshya, one of the facility-level targets is to achieve 5% or less Surgical Site Infection Rate in Maternity OT or at least a reduction of 30% from the baseline. At the time of LaQshya certification, compliance with the above-mentioned requirement is verified by the independent empanelled NQAS assessors.

The Union Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare, Dr. Bharati Pravin Pawar stated this in a written reply in the Lok Sabha today.
