Punjab Health Survey II 2017

PHS II was conducted to provide an update on the data furnished by MICS 2014 and PHS I 2016, by recording progress on the maternal and neonatal healthcare service utilization, immunization coverage and breastfeeding practices to assess the effectiveness of initiatives launched by the Department of Health Punjab in the identified maternal, neonatal and child health (MNCH) priority areas. The data collected at the household level in 36 districts of Punjab informed policy makers on progress, gaps, and identify priority areas for interventions.

In-depth descriptive data analysis was undertaken following an integrated analysis plan. The report produced district scores on various indicators, highlighting the high and low performing districts for program managers to extract learnings from and to institute corrective measures. The report was peer-reviewed by international experts and was widely cited and lauded by the Government of Punjab, donors and development partners.
