Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (RBSK) is an important initiative aiming at early identification and early intervention for children from birth to 18 years to cover 4 ‘D’s viz. Defects at birth, Deficiencies, Diseases, Development delays including disability. First level of screening is done at all delivery points through existing Medical Officers, Staff Nurses and ANMs. After 48 hours till 6 weeks the screening of newborns will be done by ASHA at home as a part of Home Based New-born Care (HBNC) package.

In our Krishnagiri District there are 10 Blocks, 20 Mobile School Health Teams which covers approximately 3 lakhs population covering 0 to 18 years.

AWCs will be covered two times in a year and school will be covered once in a year as per their advanced tour programme. Once the child is screened and referred from any of these points of identification, it would be ensured that the necessary treatment/intervention is delivered at zero cost to the family.
