The Community Behaviour Tracking Survey (CBTS) is an integral part of a standard monitoring system established for tracking the progress of the Uttar Pradesh Technical Support Unit’s community intervention program. CBTS Round three provides the district level estimates on key reproductive, maternal, new born and child health indicators. This report puts forth some priority areas such as full antenatal care, postnatal care, exclusive breastfeeding, skin-to-skin care, full immunization, and unmet need for family planning, which need to be prioritized for certain population groups and districts in order to minimize the risk of neonatal deaths and maternal mortality in the state. The estimates and analysis provided in the report have provided workable insights for the district and block level health officials to review develop, implement and prioritize specific plans for the improvement of RMNCH indicators in their respective areas
