There will be around 100 participants for each orientation camp. Responsibility of this training will be given to Health and Family Welfare Training Centres.
ORIENTATION WORKSHOPS FOR DISTRICT AND STATE HEALTH SOCIETY MEMBERS
Similar to the training of RKS and other committees, it is proposed to carry orientation training of District and State Members with the technical support from PHFI, UNICEF and UNFPA. These trainings will be carried out at regional level and District/State Mission and Society members will be briefed about the NRHM activities. This scheme will be implemented by Public Health Institute Nagpur.

MLAs, MLCs and MPs are now members of various monitoring committees for NRHM activities. Many of them are now a days taking keen interest in NRHM activities. It is proposed to organise one orientation camp plus guided tours to them in one of the districts of each circle. This program will be for one and half day and include initial briefing about NRHM, visit to health facilities and schemes and debriefing on second day afternoon.
This scheme will be implemented through Deputy Director i/c circles.
Capacity building of members of Panchayat Raj Institutions (PRI) on NRHM and Community based monitoring process in additional 8 districts of Maharashtra.
There is definite need to ensure involvement of Panchayati Raj Institution members in the effective implementation of NRHM as well as in the monitoring process of Health services. Hence it is proposed to develop capacity of PRI members regarding key CBM processes in 8 additional districts, so that they will able to actively contribute to the processes of Community based monitoring which would be initiated and developed in the coming year. Based on experience of existing five districts, it emerges that separate orientation programs tailor-made for PRI members, and focused follow up meetings with them are necessary to ensure their active interest and involvement.
