With the overall opening of the “second child” policy and the increase in high risk factors during pregnancy, the proportion of critical pregnant and lying-in women is increased, leading to increasingly grown pregnancy death risks. Although the promotion on medical and rescue level rescues a lot of critical pregnant and lying-in women, their families need to pay for high medical expenses, resulting in heavy economic burdens to poor families. For this reason, it was suggested by Yu Hua, a municipal CPPCC representative, in order to ensure infant and mom safety, perfect the rescue system, solve the medical rescue problem for poor families of critical pregnant and lying-in women and further reduce death rate of critical pregnant and lying-in women in our city, it is needed for our city to establish the relief fund for critical pregnant and lying-in women.

 

According to Yu Hua, it is a system engineering to establish a medical relief fund, which involves in different departments such as finance, civil administration, health, social insurance and red cross society. Therefore, it is suggested that the unified coordination is conducted by governments, and related departments cooperate with each other. Designated departments shall be responsible for fund raising and fund management; various levels of maternity and child care institutions shall make social investigation, to determine relief objectives; medical institutions are responsible for rescue for critical pregnant and lying-in women. In this way, it effectively utilizes strength from all social circles, to promote smooth development and utilization of the work. The special fund can originate from municipal or county-level finance departments, the Women’s Federation, good-hearted people or insurance industry.
