Reduction of Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) and Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR) are the important public health challenges for India. As a major initiative in this regard, the Health and Family Welfare Department of the Government of Gujarat, has introduced a ‘Mother & Child’ name based tracking Information management system called “E-Mamta” in collaboration with National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) and National Informatics Centre (NIC).   The system aims at registering individual pregnant women, individual children in the age group 0 to 6 and adolescents along with their full details to ensure complete service delivery of Ante Natal Care(ANC), Child birth, Post Natal Care(PNC), Immunization, nutrition and adolescent services and to track the left outs of these services.       The bilingual website, with English and Gujarati interface is quick, easy to navigate and well presented. Health details of about 85 lakh families in the entire State comprising about 4.30 crore individuals covering more than 80 percent of the population have thus been entered so far in the software’s database and system generated unique Health IDs have been provided to all.
