Healthcare, over the last year, has proven to be of utmost importance. In Odisha, not all people have the privilege of affording top-notch healthcare facilities. This adversely affects the health of the mother and the child. To benefit women in Odisha and to take care of their children, the Odisha government has launched a range of child care schemes; one of which happens to be the Odisha e-Manadeya scheme.

Under the implementation of the scheme, the responsibility of Anganwadi workers are as follows:
- To elicit community support and participation in running the programme seamlessly.
- To follow up on each child roped in under the benefits of the scheme by weighing each child every month, recording the weight of the child graphically on the growth card, use referral cards for referring cases of mothers/children to the sub-centres or PHC units, etc.
- To carry out a quick survey of the entire family when on a visitation.
- To make home visits frequently for thorough education of the parents so as to enable them to plan an effective role in the child’s growth and development.
- To provide health and nutritional education and even counsel new mothers on breastfeeding.
- To organise non-formal pre-school activities in the Anganwadi of children in the age group 3-6 years.
