Programme Title – Strengthening Community Based Monitoring Process under NRHM Services

Duration – 2012-13 , Geographical Reach – Jorhat District

The Programme

Community-based Monitoring of health services is a key strategy of National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) to ensure that the services reach those for whom they are meant, especially for those residing in rural areas, the poor, women and children. Community Monitoring is also seen as an important aspect of promoting community led action in the field of health.

The provision for Monitoring and Planning Committees has been made at Primary Health Centre (PHC), Block, District and State levels. The adoption of a comprehensive framework for community-based monitoring and planning at various levels under NRHM, places people at the centre of the process of regularly assessing whether the health needs and rights of the community are being fulfilled.

Community monitoring is to review the progress to ensure that the work is moving towards the decided purpose, and the purpose has not shifted, nor has the work got derailed in any way. Such a review can help to identify obstacles in the work, so that appropriate changes can be made to cross the obstacles.
