An evaluation of special care newborn units in eight districts in India (SCNU) PDF Print

The Special Care Newborn Units (SCNU) set up by UNICEF at ten different locations across India have gained popularity with time and seem to have contributed towards improving neonatal health care provisioning in India. This study attempts to carry out a 360 degree appraisal of these facilities to gauge the impact assessment and the gaps and challenges the model suffers from working at its optimal level of functioning. The underlying premise is to capture lessons learned to aid the process of scaling up of the SCNU model in future.
