District health plan

  • District Health Plan would be an amalgamation of field responses through Village Health Plans, State and National priorities for Health, Water Supply, Sanitation and Nutrition.
  • Health Plans would form the core unit of action proposed in area like water supply, sanitation hygiene and nutrition. Implementing Departments would integrate into District Health Mission (DHM) for monitoring.
  • District becomes core unit of planning, budgeting and implementation.
  • Centrally Sponsored Schemes could be rationalised/modified accordingly in consultation with States.
  • Concept of "funneling" funds to district for effective integration of programmes.
  • All vertical Health and Fami1y Welfare Programmes at District and State level merge into one common "District Health Mission" at the District level and the "State Hea1th Mission" at the state level.
  • Provision of Project Management Unit for all districts, through contractual engagement of MBA, Inter Charter/Inter Cost and Data Entry Operator, for improved programme management.
