Tribal population does not accept the health services from institutions as expected. Different language, different culture and different understanding about various diseases, etc. are important reasons for this. Considering this, it is proposed that one local volunteer, who knows the local language and can understand the concept of positive health can be appointed as Volunteer in tribal PHC. This volunteer will welcome the patients, direct them for case papers, and inform them about the instructions given by doctor and nurses and give simple public health messages.
It is proposed to appoint one volunteer, 10th pass, preferably female to each PHC of tribal area. Volunteer will be given training for one week. Volunteer will be paid Rs. 3000/PM as honorarium. Scheme will be continued if OPD of PHC increases by at least 20% in next year. It is proposed to start this scheme along with Maher in same 10% PHCs.
