Community Action for Health

The Community Action for Health, earlier known as Community Based Monitoring and Planning (CBMP), is a key strategy of the National Health Mission (NHM), which places people at the centre of the process of ensuring that the health needs and rights of the community are being fulfilled. It allows them to actively and regularly monitor the progress of the NHM interventions in their areas. It also results in communities participating and contributing to strengthening health services. Thereby, Bringing Public into Public Health. Read More>>

Pilot Phase

The Advisory Group on Community Action (AGCA) guided the implementation of a pilot on community action for health in 1,620 villages across 36 districts in nine states between 2007 and 2009, which was supported by the MoHFW. An external evaluation of the pilot phase observed the following outcomes:

  • The process empowered the community, especially marginalised groups to engage with Health Department
  • Strengthened service delivery and facilitated communities in availing health entitlements – with improved range, access and quality of services
  • Enabled planning and corrective action
  • Brought accountability among the service providers in relation to service delivery and meeting community needs.Read More>>

Stories from the Field

Scaling – up

Began as a pilot process in 9 states between 2007-2009, the CAH processes are being scaled up across 24 states (67%) of the country covering 352 districts (49%), 2,139 blocks (30%) and 2,24,186 villages (34%) during the Financial Year 2018-19. Subsequently, 25 states had incorporated the CAH component in their state Programme Implementation Plan (PIP), which got approved as per the Record of Proceedings (ROPs) 2018-19.

Technical support provided to the states by the AGCA and AGCA Secretariat over the last year to strengthen and scale-up implementation of CAH includes the following:

  • Facilitating 24 state level visioning and planning exercises, including the development of State PIPs.
  • Building capacities of 3,000 nodal officers and implementing organisations.
  • Supporting adaptation of CAH Guidelines for Programme Managers, User Manual, community monitoring tools and IEC materials across 12 states.
  • Facilitating initiation of CAH implementation in 3 states: Arunachal Pradesh, Goa and Jammu and Kashmir. Processes were re-initiated in Tamil Nadu after July 2012.
  • Mentoring and guiding 24 states to strengthen and scale up implementation of CAH processes.
  • Organisation of 315 Jan Samwads in 7 states: Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Meghalaya, Rajasthan and Uttarakhand.
  • Undertaking periodic programme implementation reviews in 12 States.
