ABSTRACT:

Aim: Pakistan has abolished transport charges in all public fitness services by a superb presidential directive of May 6, 2019, with the aim of promoting the use of fitness transporters and reducing pregnancy-related mortality in the country. This document aims to provide a quick overview of the effect of this policy on the use of transporters in health facilities and on the maternal mortality rate and neonatal mortality burden in Pakistan public health facilities. Methods: Our current research was conducted at Jinnah Hospital, Lahore from May 2019 to April 2020. A time-sequence analysis was carried out on the use of transport offers from health facilities, maternal and neonatal mortality two years before and after the policy intervention in 77 health facilities in 16 counties in Pakistan. Results: A statistically full-size enlarge in the variety of facility-based deliveries was identified with no significant changes in the ratio of maternal mortality and the charge of neonatal mortality. Conclusion: The findings recommend that value is a disincentive to the use of delivery room transporters in Pakistan and therefore free delivery offers are a vital approach to promoting the use of facility-based delivery services; however, there is a willingness to simultaneously address the different factors that contribute to pregnancy-related and newborn mortality. Keywords: Public Health Policy, Maternal Mortality Rate, Neonatal Mortality Burden.
