Since 2017, HPA has cooperated with local health bureaus to implement program for follow-up care of pregnant women and infants in high-risk groups for the improvement of healthcare quality of high risk pregnant women, which has effectively increased the utilization of prenatal examination visits. 

In 2020, HPA subsidizes 11 health bureaus working in co-operation with 84 medical institutions to provide health services to pregnant women with health risk factors (e.g., tobacco, alcohol, multiple gestation, gestational high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, drug use and mental health problem), socio-economic risk factors (e.g., pregnancy under the age of 20, lower socio-economic status, victims of domestic violence without prenatal examination) or infant born to mother without prenatal examination, including health education, follow up care and referral services from pregnancy to 6 weeks/ 6months after delivery to improve the health of mothers and children.
      By May 2020, the program has provided high risk maternity services to a total of 5,766 cases reaching a coverage rate of at least 85% every year. HPA plans to increase the number of cooperative counties and cities in the future to expand healthcare follow-up coverage.
