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, Nine Common Review Missions (CRMs) undertaken so far have provided valuable understanding of the strategies which were successful and those which warranted mid-course adjustments.
9th Common Review Mission (CRM) under National Health Mission was held from 30th October 2015 to 6th November 2015 in 18 States / UT namely Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Chhattishgarh, Delhi, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Manipur, Meghalaya, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan, 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.
