State Health Mission
At the State level, a State Health Mission headed by the Chief Minister has been constituted with similar composition, as that of the National Steering Group.
State Health Mission’s roles include the following:
The State will review and amend existing policies (cadre management arrangements, financial and administrative authority at various levels, role of PRIs, procurement and logistics systems etc.) to ensure that the policy environment is consistent with the Mission objectives. Additional resources to be provided to the states under the Mission would require policy reforms to be in place.
The State Health Plan (long term/annual) has been developed in accordance with the GoI Guidelines and necessary approvals from GoI and signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the MoHFW need to be taken. Implementation will have to be facilitated in line with the approved plan, monitor and take corrective action as and when necessary and carry out independent impact assessment studies (base-line, periodic) and take appropriate corrective action.
The State will provide support in preparation of health plans by districts in accordance with the GoI guidelines through mobilization of technical assistance. The District Action Plans will be assessed on the basis of appropriate evaluation criteria that have to be made available to the districts in advance. A system for monitoring performance of districts against their own work plans and comparison across districts will also be developed.
Various training programmes are being developed including management training modules for the programme managers and the staff of the State and district societies, designing “multi-skilling” training packages for doctors (e.g. anesthesia training for MBBS doctors) and paramedical workers (e.g. “multi-skilling” of lab technicians) and facilitate selection and training.
Mechanisms have been put in place to ensure coordination across Departments especially Health and Family Welfare, AYUSH, Department of Women and Children, and the Public Health and Engineering Department; to identify bottlenecks for effective delivery of services and to take necessary action through government orders or other means.
Workshops will be conducted during various phases to disseminate experiences/ innovations/ lessons learnt across districts.
Processes are being put in place for annual/ quarterly cash flow projections; closely monitoring and highlighting, well in advance, anticipated temporary shortage of funds. It will be ensured that funds are released to districts in accordance with the agreed district plans. The State will ensure that districts send their expenditure reports and other consolidated statements to GoI/ concerned agencies. Stringent monitoring mechanisms will be in place to ensure that all conditions are met for subsequent release of fund tranches.
The State will ensure maintenance of necessary books of accounts and ensure adherence to procedures laid out for procurements and payments. They will carry out audits of a sample of districts in each quarter, and facilitate the sharing of audit findings across all districts.
In order to meet the above objectives/ outcomes and carry out necessary tasks, the state has registered a single State Health Society through merger of all state level societies in the Health and Family Welfare sector, except the State Aids Control Society. These Societies will maintain separate Bank Accounts even under the unified structure. Funds for separate programmes would continue to flow under Sub-Budget Heads of the omnibus NRHM Budget Head. The Integrated State Health and Family Welfare Society has a full-time secretariat to act as the State Programme Management Support Unit (SPMSU), headed by a full time Executive Director. The SPMSU will (a) assist the Directorate of Health & FW in implementation, (b) act as the coordinating agency with other Departments for the Mission and (c) perform the role of the secretariat of the State Health Mission.
