MOMENTUM Safe Surgery India: Rapid Assessment Findings Fact Sheet

India conducted a total of 13 million surgeries in 2019 to 2020 related to obstetrics and family planning (FP) including 4.1 million cesarean deliveries (CDs), 3.4 million sterilizations, and 5.5 million long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) insertions. To understand the full landscape, a Rapid Assessment was conducted during the startup phase of the MOMENTUM Safe Surgery in Family Planning and Obstetrics in India, with the objective of assessing the current prevalence and identifying the barriers for safe surgery in FP and obstetrics. It included a literature search, secondary data analysis, and key informant interviews focusing on the three broad themes of the project – CDs, surgery for FP, and use of LARCs among adolescents and youth. Assessment findings were used to define key strategies and targeted interventions aligned with government priorities.
