Community Based Monitoring

Community Based Monitoring of Health Services under National Rural Health Mission (NRHM)


As a CBMP, the overall vision and priorities of NHM / MOHFW regarding community accountability and action are to be shared. This would be combined with sharing of perspectives by State Mission Director and State Health officials, regarding Community Action for Health (CAH) in Maharashtra. This would be followed by discussion on recent developments, challenges faced during ongoing activities, and chalking out the way forward related to CAH processes in Maharashtra.

Community based monitoring and planning (CBMP) of Health services has successfully completed 10 years of implementation as a component of NHM in Maharashtra, in June 2017.

CBMP has clearly demonstrated its significant effectiveness as a demand side intervention to improve accountability and delivery of frontline health services. It has also emerged that the concept and process of CBMP should be taken forward towards generalization, institutionalization in the existing Public Health System.

While doing so issues like public participation, all-inclusiveness, accountability, replicability,and documentationof sharing and learnings are equally important.
