State Health Mission

At the State level, a State Health Mission headed by the Chief Minister is constituted with similar composition, as that of the National Steering Group. The Role of SHM is to Actively undertake Policy and Institutional Reforms to enable effective implementation of NRHM. 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 placeThe 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.  Implementation is 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. 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 are conducted during various phases to disseminate experiences/ innovations/ lessons learnt across districts. 

Management of cash flows

Processes are put in place for annual/ quarterly cash flow projections; closely monitoring and highlighting, well in advance, anticipated temporary shortage of funds. It is ensured that funds are released to districts in accordance with the agreed district plans.  The State ensures that districts send their expenditure reports and other consolidated statements to GoI/ concerned agencies.   Stringent monitoring mechanisms is in place to ensure that all conditions are met for subsequent release of fund tranches.   The State maintains necessary books of accounts and ensures adherence to procedures laid out for procurements and payments. Audits are carried out in all the 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 maintains separate Bank Accounts even under the unified structure.  Funds for separate programmes 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 assists the Directorate of Health & FW in implementation, act as the coordinating agency with other Departments for the Mission and perform the role of the secretariat of the State Health Mission.

District Health Mission

At the district level all existing societies have been merged into the District Health Society with its apex body performing the functions of the District Health Mission(DHM). NRHM envisages financial autonomy and delegation of powers at the district level, to the District Health Mission led by the Zila Parishad.  The DHM controls, guides and manages all public health institutions in the District.  The NRHM hasl assisted in setting up the full time secretariat of the DHS. It is envisaged that the Secretariat of the District Health Society should have a small but dedicated unit for inter-sectoral co-ordination, which may directly report to the CEO, Zilla Parishad.

The role of the DHS is to ensure preparation of a District Action Plan (long term/ annual) in accordance with the guidelines provided by the State and obtain necessary approvals from the State Health Mission. Districts would have to facilitate implementation in line with the approved Plan.  They would have to establish a system for monitoring performance against the approved plan, review monitoring reports, identify corrective action to be taken and follow up to ensure implementation. Monthly and quarterly progress reports would be sent to the State Mission while a block-wise monthly report will have to be provided to the members of the Governing Board of the District Health Mission. The DHM ensures coordination across Departments especially Health and Family Welfare, AYUSH, Department of Women and Children, Rural Development, and the Public Health and Engineering Department, identify bottlenecks to effective delivery of services and take necessary action through government orders or other means.Districts will have to prepare annual/ quarterly cash flow projections; closely monitor and highlight, well in advance, anticipated shortage of funds. 

The DHM will have to follow up with State Mission to ensure that funds are released as per schedule. Districts will have to ensure maintenance of necessary books of accounts and ensure adherence to procedures laid out for procurements and payments. Districts will provide necessary assistance to the auditors in carrying out their functions as and when required.
