MCSWA / Health Services / Community Monitoring Project
Community Monitoring Project under National Rural Health Mission, GoM. MCSWA also works with the Community Monitoring Project with effect from November 2011 under National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), for both rural and urban areas in the West Jaintia Hills District.
Through the Community Monitoring People get an opportunity and space to put forth their complaints regarding health services and to give their opinions about the health services they need. Unnecessary expenses on private doctors are avoided as improved public services are utilized. People learn in detail about the government health services and schemes that have been provided by the National Rural Health Mission. People do not remain mere beneficiaries of health services rather they take on an active role of participating in implementation of these services. Some health problems at the village level can be solved through everyone’s cooperation and mutual understanding. Transparency in functioning becomes possible while providing health services.
Three blocks have been selected for both the districts: East and West Jaintia Hills i.e Thadlaskien Laskein & Khliehriat block having 9 Public Health Centers (PHCs) 21 sub- centers and 63 villages
Through this Target Intervention, the HRGs are provided with both physical support and psychosocial support and other services which are as follows:
