|After birth, the child needs the full care and attention of the mother so as to have a good health. In India, the basic facilities required for child care have been made available in even the remote villages of India. Many programs and schemes have been started so as to give the children the best health care. Immunisation of the children is utmost important and the immunisation program in India is the largest in the world if the number of beneficiaries, the geographical area and the frequency is considered.
Various training programs are taken up so as to educate the mothers about how to give a healthy body to their child. They are made aware about the necessary requirements of their children and how they should cope up with the needs of the growing children. Special programs have been developed for the girl child too which include Balika Samriddhi Yojana, Kishori Shakti Yojana, Nutrition Programme for Adolescent Girls etc.
