Reproductive rights are part and parcel of women has the right to decide whether, when and how to have children regardless of nationality, class, ethnicity, race age, religion, sexuality on marital status. However, in reality most women lack of opportunity to decide their own sexuality and fertility. This is an oppression of women.

Women undergo more risk in pregnancy child birth and unsafe abortion taking more responsibility for fertility regulation and are more vulnerable both biologically and socially to reproductive tract infection and sexually transmitted infections.

Adolescent pregnancies are high risk pregannacies, to avoid this delay in age at marriage on postpone the conception after two or three years after marriage. Health of adolescent girl is at high risk if they are married at very young age which leads to consequent child bearing anemia, premature birth complication during labor are significantly higher among adolescent mothers.

Reproductive Tract Infection (RTI) affects the lives of majority of women of Reproductive age. These can be Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) on infections which are caused through unhygienic practices during menstruation, child birth or during delivery of F.P. services. Whatever the root cause RTI can be determinate to a women’s reproductive health. The presence of infection increases the transmission of potentially fatal infection. When left untreated Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) can develop which leads to infertility. Several serious concerns in pregnancy and child birth are related to the presence of RTI including intra uterine death and neo natal pneumonia.

Thus the implementation of the RCH programme is focused on the community needs and take initiative to organize health care services according to their needs with all intervention in Manaparai Taluk.
