National Health Mission

13th Common Review Mission

The National Rural Health Mission was launched on 12th April 2005, to provide accessible, affordable and accountable quality health services to the poorest households in the remotest rural regions. National Health Mission (NHM) approved by the Cabinet on 1st May, 2013, with National Urban Health Mission (NUHM) as the new sub-mission, besides existing NRHM. Annual Common Review Mission has been one of the important monitoring mechanisms under NHM. Thirteen CRMs have been undertaken so far and have provided valuable understanding of the strategies and programmes.

The 13th Common Review Mission (CRM) was organized in 16 States/UTs to review implementation progress of the National Health Mission(NHM) between 16th October 2019 to 23rd October, 2019 in 15 States/UTs namely Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Delhi, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Odisha, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand, and Uttar Pradesh. In the 16th state, Bihar, the CRM visit was deferred and was conducted from 8th November 2019 to 14th November 2019 due to water-logging following floods. The objective of the CRM is to undertake a rapid assessment of the functional status of various health programmes running under NHM and to understand key drivers and challenges impacting their implementation. It also documents innovations and best practices of each state that can be replicated elsewhere for achieving better health outcomes. All the previous 12 Common Review Missions (CRMs) held under NHM/NRHM provided valuable information about the state strategies that are successful and those that are not, enabling mid-course corrections, wherever found necessary, to happen.

One of the key objectives of this CRM is to assess the implementation of Ayushman Bharat-Health and Wellness Centres (AB-HWCs) in the states. Visits to the upgraded PHCs-HWCs and SC-HWCs are undertaken to understand the bouquet of services available at these centres. Interactions with various stakeholders such as pregnant woman & lactating mothers, AWWs, PRI members, School teachers, health facility staff, VHSNC/MAS members are included in the assessment plan for various levels of health institutions.
