It has been observed that MCP card entries are incomplete in many ways. Hence it is very necessary to evaluate the completeness of MCP card in public health institutions. Methods& material: A cross sectional study was conducted between May to June, 2019in public health facilities of Bishnupur District, Manipur, India. Sample size calculated was 440and probability proportionate to size (PPS) sampling was to choose the nos. of MCP card from each health centre. Data were collected in predesigned checklist and analysed using IBM SPSS 21.0. Descriptive statistics were used to summarize the findings. Results: Total 443 MCP cards were checked (296 for pregnant women & 147 for children) for completeness. Maximum completeness was found in Mother’s details like name - 99%, age - 98%, contact no.- 67%, BP - 89%, weight record - 89%, TT dose - 86%, and bank details - 87%. Record of IFA tablet given was found in 49% of MCP cards only. Complete entries also found in Child’s details like name - 86%, date of birth - 95%, birth weight - 79% and gender - 81%. Record of Hb%, Urine (albumin & sugar), ABO & Rh typing and HIV status of the mother were found very less. Childhood vaccination record was found in only 117(79.5%) of MCP cards. Conclusion: None of the MCP card was found with complete information which was suggesting of requirement of intensified training among frontline health workers specially ANMs, Staff Nurse and ASHAs etc.
