Directorate of Family welfare

The National Family Welfare Programme is being implemented in Tamil Nadu since 1956 purely on voluntary basis. It is viewed and implemented as people's programme aimed to raise the Standard of living of the people and improve the Maternal and Child Health and thereby reduce population growth. Tamil Nadu now follows the "Community Needs Assessment Approach" to implement the Family Welfare and Maternal & Child Health programmes in the State.


Family Welfare Programme is intended to provide maternal and child health care and thereby to bring down the birth rate. It is also intended to avoid higher order of birth (i.e. third and above order of birth in a family) and prevention of female foeticide and female infanticide. This is a countrywide programme implemented with the 100% financial assistance from Government of India.

Health and Family Welfare Department - Government of Tamil Nadu is attempting to achieve the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Tamil Nadu.


  • The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (or Global Goals for Sustainable Development) are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations Development Programme. The formal name for the SDGs is: "Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development." That has been shortened to "2030 Agenda. The SDGs cover social and economic development issues including poverty, hunger, health, education, globalwarming, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, urbanization, environment and social justice.

  • These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another. Ensuring universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights are set as goals under SDG in respect of Family Welfare Programme.

The 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) to transform our world:

  • GOAL 1: No Poverty
  • GOAL 2: Zero Hunger
  • GOAL 3: Good Health and Well-being
  • GOAL 4: Quality Education
  • GOAL 5: Gender Equality
  • GOAL 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
  • GOAL 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
  • GOAL 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
  • GOAL 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
  • GOAL 10: Reduced Inequality
  • GOAL 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
  • GOAL 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
  • GOAL 13: Climate Action
  • GOAL 14: Life Below Water
  • GOAL 15: Life on Land
  • GOAL 16: Peace and Justice Strong Institutions
  • GOAL 17: Partnerships to achieve the Goal

Goal 3:-Good Health and Well-being

  • Ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages in India has made significant strides in improving various health indicators. The Infant Mortality Rate has declined from 57 in 2005-06 to 41 in 2015-16.
  • Similarly, Under-5 Mortality Rate has declined from 74 to 50 over the same period. This has been enabled, at least partially, by a significant improvement in vaccination coverage for children between 12-23 months of age. Moreover, institutional deliveries have increased from 38.7% in 2005-06 to 78.9% in 2015-16. The country’s strategy in health is focused on providing essential services to the entire population, with a special emphasis on the poor and vulnerable groups.
  • The National Health Policy, 2017 has specified targets for universalising primary health care, achieving further reductions in infant and under-5 mortality, preventing premature deaths due to non-communicable diseases as well as increasing government expenditure on health. A composite index is being used to monitor and incentivise improvements in health services delivery across states in the country. The government is aiming to immunize all unimmunized and partially immunized children against vaccine-preventable diseases by 2020. Towards achieving universal health coverage, a health insurance cover of INR 100,000 (USD 1,563) is being extended to all poor families.

Goal 5:- Gender Equality

  • Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls While much more progress remains to be made, a number of indicators pertaining to the status of women in India have moved in the right direction over the years. For instance, 68.4% of women were literate in 2015-16, as compared to 55.1% in 2005-06. Additionally, 53% of women were independently using a bank or savings account in 2015-16, which is a significant improvement from 15.1% in 2005-06. Numerous measures have been put in place for promoting gender equality. For example, The Maternity Benefit Programme protects women from wage loss. Further, several programmes are being implemented for enabling greater participation of women in the work force.

Goals and Targets

  • Goal: 5 – “Achieve Gender Equality and Empower all Women and Girls”
  • Goal: 5.6 – i) Contraceptive Prevalence Rate
                      ii) Unmet need for family planning for currently married women aged 15-49 years
  • Target:       1. Goal 70% for contraceptive prevalence Rate (CPR) by the end of 2030.
                      2. There should be ‘NIL’ unmet need for both permanent and temporary methods.
SDG Indicators Goal by 2030 Present Status

CPR 70% 52.6% 47.8%
Unmet need Nil 10.1% 12.1%
