The ongoing coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic continues to disrupt the health-care services, including the essential ones, even after the detection of the novel viral infection 2 years back. The population group comprising mothers, antenatal women, newborns, children, adolescents, and elderly people is a vulnerable one. The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly accounted for the disruption of services targeting the above population groups, especially in low- and middle-income nations. COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a wide range of problems targeting the above population groups, which has indirectly impacted the delivery of care and services. There arises the need to take specific measures to reduce the impact of the potential problems that have emerged. To conclude, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in significant interruptions in the health-care services aimed for the welfare of mothers, antenatal women, newborns, children, adolescents, and elderly people. However, as these are vital population groups, we have to adopt a multisectoral approach involving different stakeholders and move forward toward improving the reach of health-care services.
