The National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) was launched on 12th April 2005, to provide accessible, affordable and accountable quality health services to the poorest households in the remotest rural regions.Under the NRHM, difficult areas with unsatisfactory health indicators were classified as special focus States to ensure greatest attention where needed. The thrust of the Mission was on establishing a fully functional, community owned, decentralized health delivery system with inter-sectoral convergence at all levels, to ensure simultaneous action on a wide range of determinants of health like water, sanitation, education, nutrition, social and gender equality. Institutional integration within the fragmented health sector was expected to provide a focus on outcomes, measured against Indian Public Health Standards (IPHS) for all health facilities.From narrowly defined schemes, the NRHM was shifting the focus to a functional health system at all levels, from the village to the district.
Annual Common Review Mission has been one of the important monitoring mechanisms under NRHM. After the launch of National Urban Health Mission (NUHM) as a Sub-mission of an over-arching National Health Mission (NHM), with National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) being the other sub-mission of National Health Mission, 8th CRM has been conducted for NHM. Eight Common Review Missions (CRMs) undertaken so far have provided valuable understanding of the strategies which were successful and those which warranted mid-course adjustments.
8th Common Review Mission (CRM) under National Health Mission was held from 7th November 2014 to 14th November 2014 in 15 States / UT namely Assam, Bihar, Chandigarh, Chhattishgarh, Kerala, Mizoram, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, West Bengal.
For the purpose of CRM, teams were constituted comprising Government Officials, Public Health Experts, Representatives of the Development Partners and Civil Society Organisations. The teams had visited the states (two districts) for a period of five days and conducted extensive field visits followed by detailed state level debriefings culminating in a final report.
Dissemination workshop for 8th CRM was held on 16-02-2015 in Shakuntalam Convention Centre,ITPO, Pragati Maidan, New Delhi which was attended by the Participants of 8th CRM Teams, Representatives from states, Development partners and Civil Society.
