CHAPTER ­3 REPRODUCTIVE AND CHILD HEALTH PROGRAMME -II 3.1. Maternal Health including JSY (Costing for each activity at village level, Sub Center level, PHC level, FRU level is detailed in 3.1.6 ­ budget for maternal health) 3.1.1. Background Karnataka is better placed as far as the maternal health indicators are concerned in comparison to the national maternal health indicators. Maternal mortality is considered one of the best indicators of women's health as also of the quality and accessibility of the health services. The maternal mortality rate for Karnataka is 2.28 deaths per 1000 live births (SRS 2001-03) as compared to the national level of 3.01maternal deaths per 1000 live births. In Karnataka 65.1% are institutional deliveries (DLHS 3: 2007-08). Deliveries at home usually lack the services of trained personnel. Institutional delivery rate has increased from 72.8% in 2007-08 to 77.06% as per the department data. Further the institutional deliveries in North Karnataka (Gulbarga and Belgaum division is much lower than the south Karnataka (Bangalore and Mysore division). The brief details are given in annexure-1: Maternal Health Indicators: Karnataka (source DLHS) DLHS-2 DLHS-3 Sl. Indicator No. 2002-04 2007-08 1 3 Antenatal check ups 78.6% 81.6% 2 Consumption of IFA for 90 33.0% 40.7% days 3 Safe deliveries 66.5% 71.5% 4 Institutional delivery 57.95 65.1% 5 Home delivery 41.9% 34.1% 6 Post natal care within NA 69.2 2weeks of delivery 8 un met need for family 15.8 15.1 planning There is an improvement in the institutional delivery rate from 57.9% as reported by DLHS 2(2002-04) to 65.1% as per the DLHS-3(2007-08)



Causes of maternal deaths in Karnataka 2007-2008 as per the data received in form -9 The major cause of maternal death remains PPH and late referrals resulting in death during transit and arriving at hospitals at last stages. Hence efforts are made to provide quick and early transport and setting up blood storage units. Anemia accounts for 8% of the deaths hence more stress on the prevention and treatment of anaemia Causes of maternal deaths:

Goals for maternal health for Karnataka Indicators Reduction in MMR Institutional deliveries Safe deliveries Reduction in IMR Total fertility rate Current status 228 SRS (2001-03) 65.1%(DLHS-3) 71.5%(DLHS-3) 47 SRS (2007) 2.1(NHFS-3) 2009-2010 150 85% 90% 30 2.0 2010-2011 125 90% 93% 28 1.9 2011-12 100 99% 100% 25 1.8

3.1.3. OBJECTIVES: a) To increase Safe deliveries to 100 % b)To increase Institutional deliveries to 99% 3.1.4. STRATEGIES: a) Improving coverage and quality of antenatal care, high risk identification, referrals improving nutrition and treatment of anemia. b) Quality intra natal care by trained staff c) Strengthen facilities at the PHCs, to enable them to function 24x7. d) Operationalize the FRUs to enable the staff to offer quality services. e) Strengthen the referral services f) Increase the demand of institutional delivery through Janani Suraksha Yojana. g) Improve postnatal care h) Involvement of the private sector i) Encourage staff to stay at head quarters j) Record and audit all maternal deaths k) Encourage staff through awards 3.1.5. ACTIVITIES: Staff Nurses recruitment: a) 24 x 7 PHC's: Karnataka has 2195 PHC (including 516 upgraded PHC's). Of the old 1679 PHC's,it was proposed to make 1000 PHC's as 24 x 7 during Fy: 2008-09 out of which 974 PHC's have been identified as 24x7. The DH&FW Officers were permitted to hire services of three Staff Nurses at all such PHC's (including the regular Govt. Staff Nurses) so as to ensure continuity of services. 2250 Staff Nurses are working and institutional delivery has shown on upward trend. During Fy: 2009-10 it is proposed to identify additional 200 PHC's in 6 `C' category districts and in those districts where MMR & IMR is above the State average, as 24x7 and provide inputs on similar lines. There are 150 regular govt. staff nurses working in these PHC's, whose salary will be booked under State Budget. Hence the budget required under this component for Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs. 2898.0 lakhs. (@ Rs. 7000 pm x 1200 PHC's x 3 Staff Nurse (-150govt Staff nurses) / PHC x 12 months) KARNATAKA NRHM PIP 2009-10 3

However the NPCC has suggested a budget provision of Rs.2318.40 lakhs b) First Referral Units: Out of the identified 192 FRU's in Karnataka, 107 are conducting LSCS. To strengthen maternal health services at these 192 FRU's, it was proposed to provide services of two Staff Nurses/FRU during Fy: 2008-09. 280 staff nurses are in position. It is proposed to continue the services of these staff nurses during Fy: 2009-10. The Budget required under this component for Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs. 0323.0 lakhs. (@ Rs. 7000 pm x 192 FRU's x 2 Staff Nurse / FRU x 12 months) c. Staff Nurses/ANM for vacant sub centers: During the Fy: 2008-09, out of 8143 sub centers, 1744 sub centers did not have the services of ANM/staff Nurse. To improve MCH services in rural areas, it was proposed to provide service of one Junior Health Asst. Female (ANM) or Staff Nurse to such vacant sub centers. Hence 1058 staff have been contracted and are in position. Further during Fy: 2008-09, 584 Junior Health Asst. (female) have completed training from Govt. ANM Training Centers, will be posted to vacant sub centers and the expenditure for these 584 Junior Health Asst. (female) will be booked under State Sector. Hence during Fy: 2009-10, it is proposed to continue the services of Junior Health Asst. (female)/Staff Nurses for 1160 vacant sub centers. (1744-584 = 1160). The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs. 0975.00 lakhs (@ Rs. 7000 pm x 1160 sub centers x 1 staff nurse/sub center x 12 months) d) Strengthening of services in 6 `C' category districts: The MMR and IMR is high in 6 `C' category districts namely Bidar, Gulbarga, Raichur, Koppal, Bijapur and Bagalkote. The area covered by the ANM is large and field work suffers as a consequence. One sub center in the Northern Districts caters to a population of 6521 ­ 8266 while as in Southern Districts one sub center caters to a population of 4098 approximately. The details are attached as Annexure ­ 2. To strengthen and improve services in these 6 `C' category districts, services of 2 nd Junior Health Asst. (Female)/ Staff Nurse was proposed in nearly 1500 sub centers. However due to large scale recruitment of Staff Nurse/ Junior Health Asst. (female) for 24 x 7 PHC's and FRU's, recruitment under this component has not made much progress, which will show an improvement during Fy:2009-10. The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs.1260.00 lakhs. However due to above cited reasons, it is proposed to provide 50% of the required budget during Fy: 2009-10 of Rs. 0630.00 lakhs. (@ Rs. 7000 pm x 1500 sub centers x 1 staff x 12 months = 1260.00 lakhs(50%) = 0630.00 lakhs) a) Strengthening of Community Health Center (CHC) Services (new initiative): Under NRHM the services at PHC's and FRU's, have been strengthened in terms of manpower, equipments, logistics, transport facilities etc. There are about 150 CHC's which are 30 bedded hospitals, already providing Maternal and Child Health services. Some of these CHC's do not have either sufficient staff nurse sanctioned posts, or are below IPH standard or workload is very high. Hence it is proposed to provide services of two contractual staff nurses for 150 CHC's to strengthen NRHM activities with special emphasize on MCH services. KARNATAKA NRHM PIP 2009-10 4

The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs.252.00 lakhs.(@ Rs. 7000 pm x 150 CHC x 2 staff nurses / CHC x 12 months) Night Dai as helper: a) 24 x 7 PHC's: Services of Dais have been provided at 24 x 7 PHC's. The Dais stay at the PHC during the night and also assist in the delivery room .This has facilitated conducting night deliveries at PHCs. It is proposed to continue this service at 1200 PHC's, which includes additional 200 PHC's, which will be operationalized during this year. The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs. 0144.00 lakhs. (@ Rs. 1000 x 1200 PHC's x 1 Dai 1 PHC x 12 months) a) 24 x 7 CHC's (New initiative): Similar to 24x7 PHC's, it is proposed that services of one Dai per CHC for 150 CHC's, which will function as 24x 7 CHCs The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs. 0018.00 lakhs.

This service was provided at 108 FRU's so as to strengthen the investigation facilities in these institutions. As of date 98 Lab technicians are working. The services of these 98 are to be continued though no fresh recruitment is proposed. The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs. 76.44 lakhs. (@ Rs.6500 pm x 1 Lab Tech / FRU x 98x 12 months) Officers under RCH: Services of 100 contractual MBBS Doctors was provided in 6 `C' category districts as an additional MBBS Doctor to improve the MCH service delivery system at PHCs from 200708. Hence it is proposed to continue their services during Fy: 2009-10. It is noticed that Minimum Needs Program PHC's are having services of one MBBS Medical Officer with which it has become difficult to provide 24x7 services in rural areas. Hence it is proposed to provide services of one more contractual MBBS Doctor at Minimum Needs Program PHC's which are made 24 x 7 PHC's and are functioning with one MBBS Doctor as well as performing well with more than 25 deliveries per month. Accordingly it is proposed to recruit 200 MBBS doctors on contract basis to such PHC's. Moreover there are FRUs where specialists are busy with regular duties apart from their specialist duties. The priority for the specialists is to work for the maternal and child health activities hence for regular duties these MBBS doctors to be posted to FRUs on a need base. The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs. 0612.0 lakhs. (@ Rs. 17000 pm x 300 MBBS Doctors x 12 months) However the NPCC has suggested a budget provision of Rs.459.00 lakhs. KARNATAKA NRHM PIP 2009-10

5 Mobility Support: a. PHC Medical Officers: In the State of Karnataka there are 2195 Primary Health Centers 1679 PHCs and 516 upgraded PHUs). One Primary Health Center caters approximately to a population of 30,000. Hence a medical officer who is posted at these PHCs has to manage 5-6 sub centers. The medical officer apart from managing the clinic at the PHC has to manage all the national health programs. One of the important job responsibilities of the medical officer at the PHC is supervision of all the national health programs as also the monitoring of the work turned out by the ANMs, Male health workers, ASHAs and also conducts out reach services in the inaccessible areas. For the above activities at present there is no vehicle facility for the doctors, this hampers the program. In order to improve the maternal and child health parameters it is essential to provide the doctors with mobility support. It is proposed to provide a sum of Rs 500/pm as mobility support to doctor at the PHC The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs. 131.00 lakhs. (@ Rs. 500 pm x 2195 PHC Medical Officers x 12 months) b. Junior Health Asst. (female) / ANM: ANM's apart from conducting the activities in the sub center also have to conduct field visits, hence Junior Health Asst. (female)/ ANM is provided with mobility support.

Most remote PHC: Generally doctors and staff nurses are not keen in serving in the remote rural areas. They have to be motivated for taking up jobs in remote PHCs. 219 PHC's in Karnataka are identified as most remote PHC's. It is proposed to continue assistance as in the previous year to encourage three Medical Officers and three Staff Nurses to work in these hard to reach areas. The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs. 394.20 lakhs. (@ Rs. 5000 pm x 219 PHC's x 3 MOH / PHC x 12 months) Similarly it is proposed to continue assistance to three Staff Nurses working in most remote areas. The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs.0236.52 lakhs.(@Rs. 3000 pm x 219 PHC's 3 staff nurse / PHC x 12 months) b. More remote PHC's



Similar to most remote PHC's, 219 PHC's have been identified as more remote PHC. It is proposed to continue assistance as last year for three Medical Officers to work in these hard to reach areas. The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs. 0236.52 lakhs. (@ Rs. 3000 pm x 219 PHC's x 3 MOH x 12 months) for doctors. Similarly it is proposed to continue assistance to three Staff Nurses working in more remote areas. The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs. 0118.26 Lakhs (@ Rs. 1500 pm x 219 PHC's 3 staff nurse / PHC x 12 months) for staff nurses. Hence the total budget requirements allowance is approximately Rs.985.50 lakhs. However the NPCC has suggested Rs.492.50 lakhs (reduced by 50%) Incentive for managing High Risk Pregnancies: Karnataka had registered approximately 6.20 lakhs deliveries from April 08 to Nov 08. This means during Fy: 2008-09 approximately 9.0 lakhs deliveries may be registered. Out of this 67% will be institutional deliveries. It is estimated that 10% of the institutional deliveries are of high risk (HRP) in nature. It is noticed that 35-40% of maternal death are occurring due to late referrals and during transit. Hence it is proposed to continue assistance to Junior Health Asst. (female)/ASHA for early registration of HRP ANC and to ensure safe delivery. The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately Rs. 0150.00 lakhs. (@ Rs. 250 x 1 HRP x 60000 HRP during Fy : 2009-10).

Karnataka is experiencing shortage of specialists particularly in the field of obstetrics, anaesthesia and paediatrics. At the same time the private medical sector has a strong presence in Karnataka offering above services. To tap this resource, as a public private partnership, it is proposed to recognize some of the private hospitals in 6 `C' category and Chamarajanagar districts, which has poor MMR and IMR parameters. It is based on the model of Chiranjeevi scheme in Gujarat. Objectives: To increase the skilled birth attendance To increase the institutional delivery rate To buffer against the high cost of emergency obstetric care. Strategy: Scheme for BPL women who get authorization from the authorities to enable them to avail the scheme. Private providers are empanelled in the identified districts to provide the delivery care package as depicted in the table below.

Cancer cervix : Problem Description of cancer cervix in Karnataka: Cancer of the cervix uteri continues to be the most predominant site of cancer and accounted for 26.7% of all cancers in females. Cancer of the breast is the second most common site (16.6%) followed by cancers of oral cavity (11%), Oesophagus (5.7%) and ovary (5%). Over the years, a gradual decrease in the proportion of cervical cancers and marginal but steady increase in the numbers and relative proportion of breast cancers is observed In rural areas, 80% of population is at high risk due to low socio-economic status, poor genital hygiene, early marriage, multi-parity and lack of knowledge about the condition and facilities available for early diagnosis.Leading Sites of Cancer - Female: (KMIO 2004-05) Strategy: It is planned to implement the screening of cervical cancer intensively on a relatively large scale so as to reduce the incidence of cancer cervix. Cervical cancer screening and treatment using the services of specialists at the specialist camps conducted at Taluka and district level in every district. Action Plan at the specialist camps: Mobilization of target group: The PHC medical officer shall sensitize the ANMs/ASHAs and Anganwadi workers as well as Self Help Groups (SHGs) to mobilize the women in the age group of 18-45 years to the specialist camps for cervical cancer screenin .Case detection and referral of cases and follow up by the concerned PHC medical officer.

Training of MBBS doctors in the life saving Anesthesia and obstetrics skill: Maternal Mortality in our country is a major concern and as such the 10th plan targets to reduce maternal mortality rate upto 100 per one lakh live births by the year 2012. To achieve this provision of adequate and timely emergency obstetric care has been recognized globally as the most important interventions for saving lives of pregnant women who may develop complication during pregnancy and child birth. The operationalization of first referral units at sub district / CHC level for providing Em.O.C. to pregnant women is a crucial strategy of RCHII, which needs focused attention. It has not been possible to operationalize these FRUs till now due to shortage of specialist manpower, i.e. gynecologist and Anesthetist; shortage of emergency KARNATAKA NRHM PIP 2009-10


drugs; shortage of blood and in some case non-availability of properly functioning operation theaters. To reduce the maternal mortality rate, under RCH programme, steps have now been taken in Karnataka to tackle these issues. Shortage of specialist manpower, i.e. Gynecologist and Anesthetist is one of the major problem. To overcome the shortage of specialists, a scheme for engaging anesthetist and gynecologist form private sector has also been in operation. However due to acute lack of anesthetist and gynecologist in sub district areas it has not been possible to get their services. To overcome this, training of MBBS doctor in life saving anesthetic skills (18 weeks) and obstetrics (16 weeks) for emergency obstetric care has already taken up in Karnataka. Altogether 11 Medical Colleges are identified as master training centers in anesthesia and Bangalore Medical College is identified as master training institute for OBG. Following the training these doctors will be posted to identified FRUs to provide EmOC services. To encourage these doctors incentive of Rs. 1000/- per case for conducting caessarian section is proposed subject to a maximum of Rs. 7000/- per month.

3.2 CHILD HEALTH: 3.2.1. GOALS: for child health Mortality rates are good indicators of health and health care in different countries. They also help in assessing the over all socio economic development of a State. Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) is universally regarded as an important indicator of health and also the level of living of people in the community and effectiveness of MCH services in particular. As per the UNICEF 2007 report the main causes of Infant Mortality and under five mortality is depicted below:






To reduce IMR from present 47 /1000(SRS 2007) live births to 30 by the year 2010 To reduce Neonatal Mortality from 40/ 1000 live births to 25 by the year 2012 To increase exclusive Breast feeding to 90% by 2012 Present Status & Goals Curre nt Status DLHS 2008-09 35/1000L B 80% 80% 60% 90% 50% 2010 30/100 0LB 90% 90% 70% 100% 70% 2012 25 99% 100 % 80 % 100 % 90 % Goals

It is abserved that the decrease in IMR has been progressive over the past years. It is observed that the decrease in IMR is slightly higher in the urban areas (38.33%) compared to rural areas (30.88%). This is expected because of better access to health facilities & better awareness in the urban population. The cases of ARI taken for treatment & Diarrhea taken for treatment are quite high, however the knowledge about danger signs of Pneumonia & treating diarrhea with ORS is low. These are the contributing factors for high mortality as the child reaches the hospital during late stages. The scenario under Nutrition, there is need to strengthen nutrition status for the children in Anganwadi's. The weight for height is proportional in 80% of children. However, the height & weight for age should also be proportionately improved & this can be achieved through regular monitoring of Growth against Growth Charts. In Karnataka there are about 54260 Anganwadi centers, the dept. of women and child the Department of Women & Child has been requesting the Dept. of Health & FW to provide weighing machines. Anemia among children below 3 years is high which indicates de-worming and iron & folic acid tablets is required. It is proposed to supply Kit A & Kit B (one each) to all the 8143 sub centers in Karnataka from which anemia among children, deworming, diarrhoeal diseases, vitamin A deficiency, Tab. Zinc for treating diarrhoeal diseases will be taken care of.




Hence the focus will be on Preventive & promotive aspects. BCC will be targeted towards community members and the health personnel with focus on preventive aspects such as early breast-feeding, use of ORS, information on danger signs and early referral. Apart from this, the emphasis on improved Reporting from Districts needs to be addressed. The HMIS under KHSDRP is one solution.



3.2.5. ACTIVITIES: A. Integrated Management of Neonatal and Childhood Illnesses (IMNCI) approach will include: Co-ordination Committee Meeting, Facility-based outpatient & In-patient care component, Home / community-based care component (ANMs and AWWs), training component. During fy: 2006-07 & 2007-08 it was proposed to implement IMNCI components in the districts i.e., Bidar, Gulbarga, Bellary, Gadag, Bijapur, Koppal, Chamarajanagar & Kodagu, including the pilot district of Raichur, Further during fy: 2008-09 it was proposed to undertake IMNCI training in the districts of Belgaum, Uttara Kannada, Dharwad, Haveri, & Bagalkot. However training is under progress for the former 9 districts only. Hence it is proposed to undertake focused intervention in the initially proposed 9 districts only. Analysis of CNAA reports (April-December 2008) show ­ number of the child deaths in the 1-5 years age group: Belgaum division ­ 37.78% & Gulbarga division ­ 28.74% Together they account for 66.53%. Perhaps the comparatively better figures of Gulbarga are because most of the districts have IMNCI activities. A. Co-ordination Committee Meetings To formulate these approaches, the State level committee, which has been constituted in 2006, will meet twice in a year and review the program and formulate the plan of action periodically. (@ Rs. 25000/ sessions x 2 sessions at state level). Further, District level committees will meet quarterly at each district and, a budget of Rs.5000 /- session for 9 districts is proposed. (@ Rs. 5000/ session x 4 sessions / District x 9 Districts).) The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately. Rs.0002.3 lakhs. B. Facility based Child Care The Hospitals will be provided with a New Born Care Corner in the labour wards of all Health facilities. It is ensured that every PHC, CHC/TH/DH should be provided with an enclosure in the existing labour wards with a provision for multiple electrical points & a socket to fix a 200-Watt bulb so as to receive the newborn baby in a warm environment. B.1. At Sub center level: Equipment for conduct of safe deliveries in the form of SSD kits will be supplied to all ANMs. Details have been provided under Maternal Health. The ANMs are trained in SBA, where they are trained about Essential New born care. They are especially taught resuscitation, safe transport & kangaroo Mother care. Drugs in the form of Kit A and Kit B for treatment of early sepsis will be given to the ANM. B.2 At PHC level: All the existing 24x7 PHCs will be equipped to conduct safe deliveries in a phased manner giving preference to the PHCs located in most backword area as per Nanjundappa committee report. 400 PHCs will be provided with Neonatal Resuscitation Equipment consisting of Suction apparatus, Ambu bag, Weighing Machine, etc during Fy 2009 ­10. The Staff Nurses & ANMs KARNATAKA NRHM PIP 2009-10 35

will be taught the use of Bag & mask in the Skilled Birth Attendance training. They are taught to treat infections with injectable antibiotics in case of severe illness & the necessary drugs will be supplied. . The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately. Rs.0076.0 Lakhs. B.3. At CHCs & FRUs It is proposed to provide 150 CHCs with Neonatal equipment. A kit consisting of a Radiant Warmer, Phototherapy Unit, Glucometer, weighing Machine, Resuscitation Equipment (Ambu Bag, Suction Apparatus). The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately. Rs.160.0 Lakhs. C. 1. Home Based Care Component: As 30% of deliveries continue to occur at home, the community has to be trained in New Born care & the concept of TBA & ANM conducting Home deliveries cannot be denied. The SSD kits provided to the ANMs can be used to conduct deliveries in the home setting wherever it is inevitable. It is proposed to hold Community Awareness programmes once in a quarter in the CHCs/schools in CHC area, etc with the Pediatrician if available. The Administrative Medical Officer of the CHC who will be responsible to conduct these programs. This will result in the involvement of the Specialists in Community Health & ensure active participation of the Hospitals in National Programmes & preventive & promotive health. Participants will include local women leaders, Shree Shakti Groups, NGOs Women & Child Department & Anganwadis of the PHCs coming under the CHC apart from the main participants who are the Community people. The event could be organized on ANC / Immunization Days before the start of the session. It should be more of a demonstration exercise & an interactive session rather than a lecture. Topics could vary as per the season as mentioned in Facility based care. Community awareness camps at CHCs, ORS in the first quarter, Breast feeding second quarter (August-Breast feeding week), Newborn care third quarter, Nutrition fourth quarter or any topic of relevance to that area at that particular time. The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately. Rs.0018.0 Lakhs. (@ Rs. 0003 Lakh / 4 sessions/ CHC/ 150 CHC) The Anganwadi workers and ASHAs will be informed about the early identification of common childhood illness and treatment of simple illnesses. The Community also will be apprised of identification of danger signs & early referral through Village Health & Nutrition days. Also through activities at the CHCs, which will be outlined under Home based care for all districts mentioned in the subsequent chapters. C.2 Care at birth KARNATAKA NRHM PIP 2009-10


It is linked intimately to maternal care. The principle is that as soon as the baby is born, is provided warmth, resuscitation, clean care and exclusive breastfeeding. Baby is weighed, examined, and if her clinical conditions not manageable, baby is referred and transported to higher facility. Newborn care is relatively easy to implement in facilities because of the presence of skilled birth attendants (doctor / nurse / ANM/LHV). Skilled Birth Attendant Training enables the health staff to deliver services in a more effective manner. In order to provide newborn, two approaches of Facility based newborn care & Home Based Newborn Care, it is necessary to provide the following items in a kit: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Digital Thermometer, Weighing Scale with sling Ambu bag silicon( Infant) Disposable Plastic Mucus extractor Torch with cell

Medicines like Tab. Paracetamol 500mg and Co-trimoxazole (Trimethoprim 40 mg, Sulphamethoxazole 200 mg) suspension may be supplied from respective PHCs. The Budget requirement under this component during Fy: 2009-10 will be approximately. Rs.112.00 lakhs. Adequate referral arrangement and secondary & Tertiary care facilities for sending a sick neonate when it requires hospitalization As many as 10% of all neonatal illnesses need secondary and Tertiary neonatal care for their better management and survival. The major problems managed at NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) are: 1. Preterm babies for general preterm care 2. Preterm babies with complications like · Respiratory distress syndrome · Infections and sepsis · Hyper Bilurubenemia · Feeding Problems · Convulsions · Meconium aspiration syndrome · Major & minor congenital anomalies 3. Term babies with · Birth asphyxia · Hyper Bilurubenaemia · Infections and Sepsis · Convulsions · Bleeding diathesis · Congenital anomalies 1. To facilitate the availability of such treatment to many neonates all over the State and to cater to the demand of such sick neonates a corpus amount of rupees 500.00 lakhs has been reserved for the tertiary neonatal care either in the private or the Government institutions which are going to be identified subsequently on the basis of a) Strategical KARNATAKA NRHM PIP 2009-10 37

location and accesability, b) Number of districts that can utilize the services of the Institution, on the model of successfully implemented Yashashwini scheme. Rs. 500.00 lakhs has been reserved for this. 2. Indira Gandhi Institute of Child health, Bangalore will be the Nodal institute to guide the State on selection of Institutions, technical specifications, Analysis of present scenario in those institutions, and continued support to these institutions. 3. Selection of Institutions for the service provision shall be done by preeparing a check list on the basis of standards set by the Nodal Institution i.e Indira Gandhi institute of Child health. Indra Gandhi Institute of Child health, Bangalore which is a premier research and an autonomus apex institute headed by Honorable Minister for Medical Education , Government of Karnataka. The institute has submitted a proposal, and rendering advanced child health care by providing Medicare services such as Paediatric medicine , Paediatric Intensive care Unit ( PICU), Neonatal services with Intensive care Unit ( NICU) and other superspeciality services like Paediatric surgery. Many high risk cases are referred to this institute for advanced treatment from different levels of health centres from urban and rural areas of the State and from neighbouring states. It is proposed to extend a grant of Rs.100.00 lakhs towards strenghnening tertiary neonatal care, to IGICH, which will contribute to a large extent in reducing IMR.

E. Infant & Young Child Feeding Breast feeding-Early & Exclusive will be advocated. Breast feeding week will be observed in all Hospitals. Right composition of complementary feeds with locally available food & time of introduction will be told at VHSC meetings & Village Health & Nutrition days. Care of children below 3 years is being given in collaboration with Women and Child Department through Anganwadis. The problem of underweight and stunted children below 3 years will be addressed by early identification through regular weighing of children and monitoring with Growth charts. The Nutrition wing of DH & FWS, will be involved in this activity. G. Control of Acute Respiratory Infections Acute Respiratory Infections are one of the major causes of under 5 mortality in India. Management of Respiratory Infections is as per the guidelines under RCH where the Health workers are taught to classify Respiratory Infections as Upper & lower respiratory Tract infections & as mild, moderate & sever illness as per findings of Respiratory rate, Chest in drawing, wheeze, drowsiness etc.,



Sub center level-as outlined above: the ANM will examine the child & after ensuring that the child is properly classified: will start the child on medicines as per the dosage prescribed in the guidelines. PHC level-doctors are trained to give antibiotics & other drugs for Respiratory Infections. CHC level Apart from drugs, Oxygen Concentrator, which will help in the management of Asthma & related conditions. H. Management of Diarrhoea Diarrhea is a major cause of death in under 5 children. Recognition of symptoms & signs & Classification of diarrhoea into No Dehydration. Some Dehydration & Severe Dehydration will be taught to all the Doctors & Para medical personnel through formal & on-job training. Use of ORS, Tab.Zinc & Intravenous fluids will be taught & the same will be supplied through GOI drugs. The same will be ensured under Home-based care also. As mentioned earlier, the activities of CME & community awareness at CHC, PHC & Village Health & Nutrition days will create more awareness of the importance of seeking treatment in the early stages. I. Promotion of Child Health Village Health & Nutrition Days will be used as platforms to educate the community about Home based care of newborns, diarrhea, Respiratory Infections & danger signs along with informing the public of nearest services available (presence of doctors, diseases which can be treated at various levels & emphasizing about which patients have to be taken to Higher Facilities without wasting time. J. School Health & Nutrition Programme School health check-ups for Government school children is being regularly under-taken. Nutrition of school children is being looked after by the WCD and Education Departments under mid-day meal programme. De-worming tablets & IFA being given to children.

3.3.4 Strategies: Strategy-1 Action at District level At the District level an implementation team consisting of District Surgeon, District H&FWO, District IEC Officer, District NSV Trainer is to be formed. District level workshops of one day duration would be held by the District team with the elected representatives, opinion leaders, media and other departmental representatives to sensitize them on male participation and in particular NSV and orient them with the implementation strategy. The committee shall fix up responsibility for pre-camp, camp and post-camp. Strategy-2 Action at Block Level. Each district would hold ½ day orientation workshops at block level to workout action plan at block level. A working group of 4 members consisting of ANM, Anganawadi Worker, MPW (male), malaria worker / male worker from other departments would be formed for one sub-centre in the rural area and for one ward in an urban area. The block IEC official / Health KARNATAKA NRHM PIP 2009-10 41

Supervisory / Anganwadi Supervisor / Malaria Inspector would be the supervisor of the group. · Prepare a schedule for visits to the homes of the target couple, inform, counsel and motivate the couples for male sterilization and inform them of the camp dates. Each worker would make at least 2 visits to counsel and motivate. · Make a list of motivated men and inform the block supervisor who would in turn inform the District FW officer. · The District FW officer would make arrangements of the camp regarding logistics, number of surgeons required for the number of cases motivated etc. · The camp would be held on a pre determined date at the district hospitals, strictly following the guidelines laid down in the standards on sterilization manual of GOI. Strategy-3 IEC Activities : 1. Meetings at District level, Block level, PHC level. 2. House-to-House hand bill distribution. 3. Posters and stickers pasting on public and Govt. vehicles 4. Publication of daily cam activities like place and date in local news paper. 5. Movement of NSV Rath as done in Madhya Pradesh. 6. Publicity in city cable and electronic media 7. Utilizing Mahila Swasthya Sanghs where it exists. 8. Interpersonal Communication through house to house contact of the target couple to provide information and motivate. Strategy-4 Complaint Redressal mechanism: All complaints arising out of the services provided in a camp should be addressed to the district collector who shall set up a complaint Redressal unit as follows: a. One nodal officer may be nominated by the district magistrate to lot into the complaints received from the clients / family members of the client b. He shall inquire into the complaint and give suitable reply to the complaint. c. The district collector shall take appropriate action as deemed necessary, if the complaints are found to be true. Strategy-5 At the State Level: The quality Assurance Guideline of GOI has laid down that the district quality Assurance Committee would be responsible for monitoring quality care in all matters related to sterilization. Hence this committee would monitor the quality of care strictly during the camp as per the guidelines.

3.4. Adolescent Reproductive and Sexual Health 3.4.1.Introduction: Adolescent Reproductive and Sexual Health is an important component of NRHM. Adolescents form nearly 22% of the total population. Adolescents in the age group of 10-14 years form more than 50% of the adolescent population. According to reports females form 47% of them are males 53%. As per 2001 census the sex ratio among adolescents is 880 for 1000 males. The present adverse sex ratio among 0-6 years will affect the future adolescent population. 43% of ever married females are below 18 years even though the legal age at marriage for girls is 18 in our country. Nearly 20% of the 1.5 million girls under 15 are already mothers (Census 2001). Female mortality is higher than males in the age group of 15-24 years and in the age group of 0-9 years. The pervasiveness of discrimination, lower nutritional status, early marriage, complications during pregnancy, and child birth among adolescents are some of the factors responsible for higher female mortality (SRS 99). Maternal mortality of teenage mothers is a matter of grave concern. Economic compulsions force many adolescents to work. Nearly one of the three in the age group of 15-19 years is working this result in high drop outs in education. Adolescents from rural areas and girls are the disadvantaged sections. 25% of the 15-19 years age group in rural areas and 10% in urban areas are illiterate. Girls account for less than 50% of enrolment figures in schools and dropout rates from class 1-10 is around 70%. Malnutrition and anaemia is rampant among adolescents. More than 70% of the girls in the age group of 10-19 years suffer from severe or moderate anaemia (DLHS RCH 2004). Adolescent mothers are at a higher risk of miscarriages, maternal mortality and giving birth to still born or underweight babies. Iodine deficiency disorders can lead to growth retardation. Use of iodized salt is only among 50% of the households in India. Hence tackling the problems related to malnutrition and anaemia needs to be addressed in the state in order to improve the health of adolescents. Adolescents are prone to drug abuse, trafficking and sex work, premarital sexual relations thus leading to increased incidence of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. While knowledge for contraception is being promoted, the availability and use of contraceptives is not published. Even among married women in the age group of -15-19 years there is unmet KARNATAKA NRHM PIP 2009-10


need for contraception. 19% of the TFR is contributed by this age group of mothers. Nearly 27% of them have reported unmet need for contraception. (NHFS 2) Reasons for investing in adolescent health and development: · To develop their capacity to cope up with the situation and deal with it positively. · To increase relationship building capacity for happy and health married life. · To reduce morbidity and mortality among adolescents. A healthy adolescent grows into a healthy adult. · To inculcate healthy habits · As human right adolescents have a right to achieve highest level of health. Benefits of investing in adolescent health · Health benefits for individual adolescent in terms of his/her future and in terms of intergenerational effects. · Improved productivity, return on investment averts future health cost. · As human right adolescents have right to attainable highest level of health. 3.4.2. Goal: Reduce IMR MMR TFR and HIV infections among this age group. Build a healthier nation in the years to come

3.4.3. Objectives of ARSH: Improved reproductive health status of adolescent girls and boys. Increase health seeking behaviour among the adolescents. Provide adolescent friendly ARSH services at SCs, PHCs and CHCs. Friendly means the services should be accessible, acceptable, appropriate, comprehensive, and effective and equity services for adolescents. Strong focus on improving the use of RCH services by poorest and under served population. 3.4.4.Strategies: Tackling key issues which keep away adolescents from availing benefits of health services Involving services of NGOs (including MNGOs and FNGOs) to increase health seeking behaviors among the adolescents. To make provision for demand generation activities and provision for health services at all facilities. Increase health awareness among the girls married and unmarried through consorted efforts from departments like women and child, education, PRIs, youth services, water KARNATAKA NRHM PIP 2009-10 46

supply and sanitation (to increase number of toilet users). Registration of all under 19 pregnancies during the first trimester. Involve private health providers in organizing `Teen Clinics' on fixed days to provide health care and counseling services to adolescents. Poor knowledge and awareness is the root cause of reproductive and sexual problems among adolescents hence increase the knowledge on RCH and bring about behavioral changes among adolescents. Use of exiting VCTCs for counseling adolescents on matters related to RCH. At the level of health facilities providing adequate privacy, confidentiality while giving services to adolescents. Training of staff to provide adolescent friendly services, esp. MOs, ANMs in counseling services. Promotion of EC pills to prevent Linkages with WCD, Education and Panchayat Raj institutions. 3.4.5. Coverage: During the year 08-09 ARSH programme with service delivery services shall be continued to be implemented in 4 districts viz. Tumkur, Chamarajnagar, Bagalkot , Koppal and introduced in 8 new selected districts with the following criteria: o Where more than 60% of the girls are married below 18 years o Incidences of teenage pregnancies are more. o Where literacy level of girls is less o Indicators show high rate of IMR, MMR and TFR. 3.4.6. Priorities, Constraints and Actions to overcome constraints in implementing the ARSH programme in the State: Sl.No Priorities . 1 Functional facilities ­ Establishing fully functional SCs, PHCs, CHCs and district hospitals to provide ASRH services Constraints Action to overcome constraints

3.5. Urban Health Urban Health Centre With increasing urbanization, growth of slums and low income population in the cities, the provision of assured and credible primary health services of acceptable quality has emerged as a priority thrust area for both the central and state Governments. The need has arisen to create a well-organized health service delivery structure in urban areas especially for poor people living in slums. The emerging importance of the problem can be gauged from the fact that the total population of Karnataka state is 5,28,50,562 and the urban population is 1,79,61,529. Goal and objective of the program: To improve the health status of the urban poor community by the provision of quality integrated Primary Health Care services.

Objective: The main objective of the program is to provide an integrated and sustainable system for primary health care services delivery in the urban areas of the State, with the focus on the urban poor living in slums and other vulnerable health groups. To attain this, the specific objectives will be: Establishing new facilities in 34 identified urban slums areas, which are not covered by urban health centers. Establish referrals with tertiary care centers, i.e. District hospitals, Medical colleges etc for institutional deliveries, emergency obstetric care and terminal method of family planning. Appoint link workers who will act as link between community and health facility.

Program description: Coverage: The program would be implemented in a phased manner in 34 selected towns of Karnataka states. The proposed urban health program will focus on cities having a population between one to ten lakh/ It is proposed to cover these cities in the phased manner as per the following: Phase Year No. of Centres I 2005-06 4 II 2006-07 6 III 2007-08 8 IV 2008-09 13 V 2009-10 3 Total 34

Strategies: State level steering committee for urban health activities has been constituted. Mapping KARNATAKA NRHM PIP 2009-10 51

of 34 urban slums has already been completed; basic demographic and health indicators have been collected. Each of proposed urban health centers will cover a population of 50,000. Lady medical officers will be appointed on contractual basis for all the selected urban centers. She will be responsible for providing all OP services and also she will conduct at least 4 outreach visits in her geographic area. Identification of tertiary referral centers will be done by Lady medical officer of UHC in coordination with the District health officer and will establish formal linkages for service delivery. Para-Medical Staff i.e, JHAF, SHAF etc and other staff will be appointed on contractual basis. Each JHAF/ANM will cover 15,000 populations for providing outreach services. She has to prepare a micro-plan showcasing the area and days on which outreach services will be provided. To develop and maintain a link between the health facility and the community, the program envisages the engagement of female link workers for every 5000 population who are in the age group of 23-35 and are able to spare three to four hours a day, and are acceptable to the community and preferably to be engaged through local NGOs. Training: The training programs will be conducted for newly appointed staff of urban health canters. Present status: Out of 34 identified cities to start Urban health centers under NRHM, so far 31 centers have been sanctioned during the year 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09. It is proposed to start 3 centers during 2009-10.

3.6. TRIBAL AND VULNERABLE POPULATION (Cost of each activity is detailed in 3.6.7) 3.6.1 Introduction Karnataka State has a strong commitment to improve the health status of its population, particularly the poor and vulnerable groups including women, children and those belonging to tribal, nomadic and other vulnerable (T&V) groups. Karnataka has 34,63,986 Scheduled Tribes and 85,63,930 of Scheduled Castes population. This represents 6.55% and 16.20 % of the total population of Karnataka respectively (as per 2001 census). Of this totalof SC/ST population 20% are tribals and the other vulnerable groups. Knowing very well ST & SCs particularly the triblas have a high disease burden particularly in mothers and children, the RCH II program needs to address this group specifically. This is compounded with illiteracy, poverty, malnutrition, poor sanitation and inadequate access to safe drinking water, utilization of health services by Tribal &Vulnerable is low due to the difficult geographical conditions and the social constraints in which they live. Their settlements tend to be small and isolated and difficult to reach with facilities and services. Even when they live in larger villages they may be separated in hamlets and pockets. The health related goals are: a. Reduce Child Mortality b. Improve Maternal Health c. Combat HIV/AIDS, Malaria, TB and other specific diseases to tribal's like sickle cell anemia 3.6.2. Situation Analysis 1. Even though Karnataka remains a high performer in health status when compared to many other states in India with better health indicators, there is scope for improvement. Disaggregated data indicate substantial disparities in various indicators across 29 districts in the state with much worse indicators among the tribal and vulnerable groups. 2. The maternal mortality as well as infant mortality is stated to be specifically high as reported in the State Government (CNA Form 9) and as reported for various morbidity conditions in mothers and children in DLHS- RHS. NFHS 3 data which is the most recent RCH data also confirms the same. Hence the need to address RCH issues in this vulnerable and tribal group in a focused manner.

3.6.3. Objectives: The specific objectives of the program to implement tribal and vulnerable population health are to: To provide RCH services based on the unmet RCH needs in tribal and vulnerable communities. KARNATAKA NRHM PIP 2009-10 54

Making the RCH services integrated, appropriate and quality based. Ensuring equitable access to all the tribals and nomads or other vulnerable groups irrespective of their geographic or social constraints. Educate the population to appreciate the need for improved RCH care and thus create demand for these services. Improve service coverage and acceptability and ensure uniformity in supply of services to all the groups. Promote community participation and inter-sectoral coordination Promote and encourage safe health practices and use alternate systems of medicine if found suitable for these groups. 3.6.4. Strategies to be adopted: Improving the accessibility Infrastructure development Incentives to health functionaries- Human resources Training JSY IEC Equipment , drugs and supplies 3.6.5. Community Participation: Karnataka has been home to many innovations. One of the objectives of the project is to reduce MMR. And this rate is unacceptably high amongst the women belonging to poorer communities. In order to create awareness on safe delivery practices, PHCs are organizing `Samooha Seemantham' or Community Celebration of pregnancy which has proved to be a good strategy for getting the community actively involved in spreading awareness about safe delivery, postnatal care etc. . On this occasion, pregnant women are honored with a Kum-Kum Tika (Vermillion on their forehead) and are given some incentive like blouse pieces and bangles. This is being conducted at the PHC level and has shown tremendous response in all the districts. The budget is met out of the untied funds. 3.6.6. Activities: Tribal area allowance The staff in the tribal areas do not stay in these areas due to lack of accommodation for the staff and poor educational facilities for their children.. To improve the availability of the services and to run 24x7 PHCs it is envisaged to encourage the staff to stay in the tribal areas by providing Tribal area allowance in the districts which have a significant tribal population. As approved in the PIP of NRHM of Karnataka for Fy:2008-09, it is proposed to continue Tribal area allowance for 78 PHC' in the districts of Mysore (25 PHC' Kodagu (26 s s), PHC' & Chamarajanagar (27 PHC' as approved in the PIP of NRHM of Karnataka for s) s) Fy:2009-10. It is proposed to provide an additional allowance of Rs.2000 to doctors, Rs.1000 to staff nurses and Rs.500 ANMs in these tribal areas.

3.7. PPP MNGO Scheme: 3.7.1. Introduction Public Private Partnership initiative in health sector in Karnataka is in existence since a long time. Schemes like Yashaswini, Telemedicine, contracting out of mobile health clinics, Management of existing health facility by NGOs, Accreditation of private hospitals, Community Health Insurance, Public Health Competitive Fund, and Training of ASHAs are some of the joint ventures that are already under implementation in the state. The National Population Policy 2000 provides for strategies for addressing RCH needs of the people of which partnership with NGOs is one important strategy. The work of NGOs is supplementary and complementary in nature to that of Government. Keeping the above in mind the Mother NGO scheme is envisaged under RCH program. The partnership between NGO and Government has an important role in providing RCH services to the community especially in the under-served and un-served areas. Objective The broad objective of the intervention is to address the gaps in information or RCH services in the selected area, building institutional capacity at the district/field level, advocacy and awareness generation. Current Status of MNGO programme In Karnataka 14 MNGOs were identified during March 2006, who covered 17 districts. These MNGOs were released with Rs 1.00 lakh each to identify FNGO and to carry out baseline survey in the identified areas where they proposed to work. After the baseline survey, some MNGOs submitted composite proposals during 2007. There was delay in submitting composite proposals for 6 districts The State NGO Coordination Committee assessed the survey findings of some of the MNGOs and felt that the credentials about these MNGOs/FNGOs related to their experience in the field needs to be evaluated afresh. A Joint Appraisal Committee was constituted for the purpose. Meanwhile some MNGOs withdrew from the scheme and some did not qualify in the ReAppraisal. Though Rs 160 lakhs was earmarked for MNGO programme during 2008-09, due to the reappraisal process under progress money could not be released to MNGOs. Situational Analysis The DLHS 3 survey finding of shows that there is sizable number of SC and ST population in these districts. The female literacy rate is low, a major contributing factor for poor Maternal and Child Health status. The Standard of Living index is much below the State's Standard of Living Index. Percentage of girls marrying before the age of 18 is also very high, which is another contributing factor for poor maternal and child health. A sizable percentage of birth order is of 3 and above, indicating that the FP programme needs to be improved. Since there are unserved and underserved pockets where the government health service is inaccessible, there is ample scope for the MNGOs to venture and improve the awareness about health services in such areas. Proposal During the year 2009-10 it is proposed to implement in 9 districts namely, Bidar, Gulbarga, Bijapur, Raichur, Koppal,Haveri, Kolar, Hassan and Mysore. Five of these districts are `C' categorgy districts. Since composite proposals were prepared with reference to the data of year 2005-06 which are outdated, the MNGOs will be asked revise the baseline data, target and indicators keeping the DLHS -3 data as reference. The key service delivery areas under MNGO scheme areas. KARNATAKA NRHM PIP 2009-10 57

Maternal & Child Health Family Planning Adolescent Reproductive Health Prevention & Management of RTI. Measurables The MNGO will clearly identify the output and measurable indicators, demonstrate qualitative and quantitative improvement in meeting the RCH needs of the Community in the identified area. Through the FNGOs it will be responsible for establishing referral services for treatment/ linkages of RTI/STI with other service components, reduction in prevalence of RTI/STI cases, BCC and social mobilization, promotion of condoms, orientation of private practitioners for raising awareness on causation, transmission and prevention of RTI/STI, provide basic package of MCH service, The MNGO should be able to demonstrate a measurable change in maternal and child health status in the community like 1. Reduction in maternal death 2. Decrease in early marriage 3. Increase in birth interval 4. Increase in institutional delivery 5. Promotion of breastfeeding 6. Increase in % of fully immunized children 7. Improved nutritional status of pregnant mothers and children 8. Reduction in unmet need for FP etc. 3.7.2 Budget Requirement: The maximum permissible fund that may be released to a MNGO is Rs 15 lakhs per year. Budget is calculated for 9 MNGOs under whom there are 30 FNGOs. The salary component of the NGO Coordinator is also budgeted. Fund for Existing MNGOs in 9 district for 1 year@ based on the Rs 120 lakhs number of FNGO under the MNGOs (30) + Salary,TA, DA to State NGO coordinator Rs 120 lakhs TOTAL

After NPCC meeting the budget is modified to Rs.90 lakhs.

3.8. Behaviour Communication Change 3.8.1 Background: Human behaviour is complex and difficult to achieve change, it needs continued motivation". Over the years, IEC programmes and activities have resulted in improved knowledge about health, family welfare and nutrition, but these results are not to the expected level as this has failed to produce behaviour change". BCC is a process that motivates people to adopt and sustain the healthy behaviour and lifestyles. Sustaining healthy behaviour usually requires a continuing investment in BCC as part of overall health programme. BCC helps in understanding the dynamics of health issues in terms of · Causes of health issues its preventive measures. · Gender, which has major role in all health activities, as adoption of desirable health practices requires support and understanding between both spouses. · Possible health related behaviour (encouraging and discouraging) · Social, economic and political factors · Develop problem statement that summarizes the above points to address the problem. Therefore, in order to reach the target groups and communities, various types of IEC activities at different levels are essential to facilitate them to adopt desirable health practices for improved life style and healthful living. Apart from carrying out awareness activities, the support of village health committees, panchayath raj institutions and other line departments is equality important for the sustainability of the health messages. All BCC/IEC activities focus on all human resources of health & family welfare department at various levels as well the local community based organizations, private sector people, as well as representatives of panachayath raj institutions at all three levels. These human resources need to be capacitated in disseminating NRHM components, its advantages, and services available at various levels so that the community will utilize them for better and improved health. As BCC/IEC activities aim at behavioural changes, it is necessary that these activities are to be carried out regularly for all target groups at various level. This requires meticulous planning, implementation and monitoring. Therefore, it has been planned to procure the consultancy services for Design and Management of IEC activities under NRHM component. Keeping these in view, proposed Action Plan for 2009-10 is prepared which gives the details of man power, equipment, IEC materials (printed & electronic) which are supportive to carry out BCC/IEC activities to the desired level. It is to be noted that all IEC materials are very much essential for all the field functionaries as well as training/capacity building programme activities. The details of action plan for 2009-10 is as follows:

ORGANIZATION DEVELOPMENT Organisational Development, is a process to improve and strengthen the role of Government in the Public Health Sector with an objective to move the Department of Health & Family Welfare Services towards a result-based approach. Acquisition of new skills and knowledge, requires external technical assistance and internal capacity building for an organization. Organisational Development envisages the adoption of doing things in a new, more effective and result oriented ways. Apart from the communicable diseases, the non-communicable diseases like diabetes, CVD (Cardio Vascular Diseases), Psychiatric illnesses etc., have become a significant entity in health. The public health system has to gear up to cater to noncommunicable diseases preventive and curative care along with its vast on-going National Health Programme. The orgnizational set up in the Public Health Sector needs to be improved and strengthened to meet the present need of the people. Thus the concept of ` organization development' has been envisaged. In order to move towards the result-based approach, a process of planning, implementation, supportive supervision periodical effective monitoring and replanning for the better would be necessary. Keeping in mind the role played by the Private Sector in delivering health care services to the masses, their potential can be used for the improvement of health care delivery systems. Scope in organization development : 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Capacity building through the HRD programme. Re-organising the department. Formation of a Public Health Act. Strengthening of a Strategic Planning Team & Senior Management Team. Drafting of Medical manual for Medical Officers. Providing schemes of incentives to encourage, for further improvement in Health care service delivery.

These when well planned and effectively implemented would set the wheel in motion for achieving a result based approach. Objectives: 1. a. To improve IPC and resolving issues that hinder affective functioning. b. To bring about awareness, co-operative and co-ordination in achieving the MDGs 2. To bring about transparency, clarity and confidence in Procurement State Procedures World Bank Procedures 3. To established effective documentation, analysis and corrective actions for maximum usage of allotted funds. 4. To inculcate confidence, resilience and have positive attitude to move ahead towards achieving the MDGs. 5. Up to date computer knowledge, to improve documentation, effective dissemination of information and analysis, in co-ordination with HMIS wing.


The strategies for Organization Development would be : 1. Bringing about an ` attitudinal change' in the personnel delivering health care services. 2. A behavioural change communication would strengthen the integrity of the H.R.D. in DoHFW. 3. Development in the skill and knowledge of the people through trainings, workshops, meetings, group discussions, tele conferencing study tours and visits etc. 4. Recognising marked achievement and rewarding would encourage and uplift the enthusiasm of the health care personnel. 5. Counselling for recruitment and transfer along with timely eligible promotions would facilitate people to give their best services for health care. 6. Refurbishing method of accountability of services rendered would drive the organization towards a result oriented approach. A well studied change in The Cadre and Recruitment Rules would be effective to achieve the target, objective and the goal of the Department. Similarly the drafting of Public Health Laws and Rules would stream-line the department. A comprehensive public health act would keep the department in a disciplined and systematic form. Thus Organization Development would cater to the wholesome development of all levels of Health Care Providers in the Public Sector , with encouragement for the PPP concept in public health. 3.9.9.

PRINTING OF REGISTERS OBJECTIVE: The ANM's at the field level are loaded with lot of work both in the field as well as noting down the services provided in the register. At present they are maintaining around 30 registers of various kinds. By streamlining, we may downsize the No of registers maintained by the ANM's and also Information pertaining to single ANC case will be available in the single register. SCOPE: Authenticated information may be obtained from the grass root level, since only one register will be maintained. Easy to cross check whenever necessary, and comprehensive report may be prepared every month based on the information. DETAILS: It is planned to downsize the number of registers maintained by field staff at the SUB_Centre level. At present around 30 registers are maintained by ANM at the field level. Discussions were held with programme officers, field level staff and Doctors of PHC's to know about the existing registers and its usefulness. These registers are to be printed and supplied to all the subcentres for maintaining the records properly, and also to forward the data to D & E cell in the Directorate. ESTIMATE There are around 8000 and odd subcentres, need about 10,000 registers for the year 2009-2010. Each ANC case will have 80 columns ie., 5 pages, assuming 25 ANC,s in a month and 5 cases can be entered in 5 pages we require around 30 pages in a month, and for 1 year it works out to be360 pages, and for external cases we may require approximately around 200 pages, and Each register will be printed using A3 size paper. According to the above assumption we require 10,000 registers of A3 size having 600 pages each. Assuming each register to cost Rs 500, total cost works out to be 50 lakhs .


PRINTING OF FORMATS OBJECTIVE: Government of India has introduced the new web enabled data transfer system throughout the country to have uniformity of data flow from all the states. Eventhough the data transfer is through web portal, hard copies are to be maintained in the respective institutions for future reference, and also for data capturing from the field level formats designed by GOI has to be printed and supplied to all the health institutions. SCOPE: Collecting data in a standard format supplied by GOI enables us to have a uniform reporting system, and also helps us in co-ordinating in a better way with the Central Government.

DETAILS: Implementation of WEB-ENABLED reporting system, as per the requirement of Govt Of India, the data has to be captured from Sub Centre level and upwards in the new format supplied by Govt Of India. The new formats have to be printed and Supplied to all the Institutions for capturing the data in the new format. ESTIMATE: Total no of Health Institutions of all levels right from SubCentre level works out to be 10675, say around 11,000, and each institute require 25 formats for 1 year and assuming each format is having around 5 sheets (10 pages), and cost of printing each format to be around Rs 10/= per format. The total cost works out to be Rs 27,50,000/= Say 30 lakhs


TRAINING PROGRAMME: OBJECTIVE: All field level staff are not computer literate, further the web based data transfer system itself is a new concept, which has to be understood properly, unless and untill we train the lower level staff, the very purpose of web portal will be defeated, as such Training programme to educated the field level staff is a must. SCOPE: By Training the lower level staff we will have uniform flow of data from all the lower health institutions, which will help in accurate consolidation and preparing required reports, further it helps in faster flow of data and helps in analysing the data. DETAILS: The WEB-ENABLED reporting system is a new computerized reporting system, wherein the data flows from the lower level to the State through WEB PORTAL. The lower level staff should be oriented towards the new system and exclusive training has to be imparted. Regular training programes at the state level, Division level, and at the District level has to be organized. ESTIMATE: It is assumed that 2 training programmes are arranged in a month from April 2009 onwards for various field level staff and estimating approximately around 50 trainees in each training programe and each programme on an average for 2 days the total cost for each training works out to be Rs 15,000 + Sundry expenses (100 people at Rs 100 per day +Rs 5,000 for logistic support). Total cost works out to be 3,60,000 (4Lakhs)


EVALUATION STUDY: OBJECTIVE: Evaluation of ongoing and implemented scheme in any department is a must, for effective planning of other schemes in the department. It helps in identifying the loop holes and problems faced while implementing the programmes, so that best strategy can be worked out to implement the scheme in the right direction. SCOPE: Evaluation studies will have a cross-check and cross verification of various developmental schemes implemented in the department. The lower level staff will work with caution and take extra care while implementing the programmes. DETAILS: The Health department is implementing several beneficiary oriented and development oriented schemes, for the health care of the people. It is mandatory to know how these schemes are reaching the people, and how successful the schemes are for the welfare of the people, further the assessment has to be done based on the feed back from the people. Evaluation studies on some of the Important schemes may be taken up for Evaluation both Inhouse and through External agency. ESTIMATE: Two evaluation studies on important schemes of the department may be considered to be done by external agency, for which an amount of Rs 10 lakhs may be earmarked and further sample check and sample studies can be taken up by the inhouse personnel of demography cell, for which an amount of Rs 15 lakhs may be earmarked.

INFRASTRUCTURE SUPPORT: OBJECTIVE: To have the latest statistical packages and latest computers and printers for the demography wing will help in analysing the data in a better way.


SCOPE: Adopting the latest technology available in the market, the demography cell personnel will be equipped and armed with latest technology for providing accurate reports, and also helps in generating the reports on time without delay. DETAILS: The infrastructure has to be updated keeping in mind the latest developments on the field, Since the D & E cell will be collecting the WEB based reports in near future latest computers and printers has to be procured for the section, further since the D & E cell is planning to take up sample check on various schemes of the department additional Vehicular support is required for the section. ESTIMATE The total estimated cost of Rs 10 Lakhs may be earmarked for purchasing computers, software and printers. Also 5 lakhs may be earmarked for vehicular support for the section which may be outsourced, which will help the D & E cell to take up the sample check survey effectively.

3.12.5. JOURNEY SO FAR: a. The State Program Manager and State Finance Manager have been appointed during the year of 2007-08 and are provided supporting staff & necessary logistics. The State Accounts Manager has also been recruited and placed in the SPMU. The Management intricacies of the entire NRHM program is being streamlined with the constitution and strengthening of the SPMU under the overall supervision of the Chief Administrative Officer of the KHSDRP who has been given an additional responsibility of the SPMU. The Financial Management also has been streamlined with the Chief Finance Officer (CFO) of KHSDRP being given the additional responsibilities of managing the NRHM finance. The FMG at the state level has been constituted and functioning under the overall leadership of CFO. b. The finance management has been further strengthened by opting for core banking system with SBI & SBM which has resulted in easy flow of funds from the State upto the facility. The release as well as the expenditure is being closely monitored through EFT and monthly balance MIS report obtained from the banks respectively. c. State has got 176 blocks / talukas which have been strengthened by constituting BMPU with the provision of Block Program Manager & Block Accounts Manager. d. At the district level the MBA qualified District Progam Managers have been appointed during 2006-07. The qualified District Accounts Managers have also been selected and placed in all the district DPMUs. They have been provided necessary supporting staff in accounting and data entry. The DPMU is headed by the District Program Management Officer (DPMO) there by merging and unifying the NRHM & KHSDRP functions which has been giving a much needed thrust to the program implementation of NRHM activities at and below the District level. This has also resulted in relatively young officers assuming responsibilities which is a welcome and needed change for the development of the department. e. Five state level consultants who were planned and recruited under RCH-II program are assisting the NRHM program division / SPMU very effectively and efficiently. SPMU has been further strengthened by the provision of two more NRHM consultants to improve the quality and effective management through providing necessary directional inputs to the SPMU. 3.12.6. MILESTONES IN THE JOURNEY: It is worth recollecting here and placing on records some of the decisions and actions in the NRHM implementation over the past years which have made significant and perceptible impact on the integration of the Mission with the general health activities and sensitizing the entire Department of Health & Family Welfare and other departments in the Government, so also the elected representatives and general public. Though the journey was naturally arduous in the beginning, these decisions have helped in gathering the momentum in implementation in the recent past.


a. Integration of KHSDRP and the Mission at state and merger at District level has resulted in providing the synergy and avoiding duplication in implementation and bring about economy in all the activities, since the KHSDRP & NRHM are working for the achievement of the same millennium development goals. b. To this effect the world bank was convinced the usefulness and utility of integrating the two programs and the bank has given permission to utilize the KHSDRP funds for training of members of 23,000 VHSCs, members of the Community Health planning and monitoring comities of various levels, Arogya Raksha Samithi members and other related PRI members. c. The Mission Director, NRHM office has been setup in the premises of Directorate of Health & Family Welfare Services to bring about close, regular and intensive interaction with all the state level officers which will finally lead to the ownership of the NRHM activities by the Directorate and assured sustainability. d. All procurement of NRHM & KHSDRP have been internalized with the Commissionerate of Health & Family Welfare and Directorate of Health & Family Welfare Services by creating a functional need assessment committee under the chairmanship of JD planning, thereby avoiding multiplicity of procurement of goods, equipments and works. e. Procurement has been further internalized in the sense that all the RCH procurement has been given to Karnataka Drug Logistics and Ware House Society under the chairmanship of Commissioner of Health & Family Welfare, which has been developed on the model of TNMC. f. The program officers of the RCH thus can devote their full time in program planning and implementation. g. The engineering division which existed with the KHSDRP has been given the responsibility of civil works, both of fresh and repairs of different physical infrastructures taken up by the State, NRHM & KHSDRP which has resulted in unified execution of civil works, accountability and cost cutting. h. "What is not monitored does not get implemented" is the time tested management philosophy which has been fully practiced in the state. 1. The Executive Committee meeting of the State Mission is conducted every month without fail under the chairmanship of Secretary, Health & Family Welfare, wherein the different components of NRHM are reviewed in totality of all stages of planning, programming, process and implementation. 2. The responsibility of technical monthly review of the officers of the Directorate of Disease control programs has been given to the Director of Health & Family Welfare Services and that of MCH, to the Project Director, RCH thereby monitoring the quality of supervision and implementation. 3. Divisional and District review meetings are happening regularly at the respective head quarters by involving the heads of the Districts, both revenue and ZP administration which has given the necessary pace for the NRHM implementation.


4. The officers working in the different program divisions of the Directorate of Health & Family Welfare Services have been given the responsibility of mentoring and monitoring one district each as "NODAL OFFICERS OF THE DISTRICT" to not only visit for 3 days in a month or as often as necessary to these districts and closely monitor the implementation of NRHM activities at different facilities but also interact with the Chief Executive Officer of the Zilla Panchayat & the Deputy Commissioner of the District. They also have been given structured review formats so that the quality of the review is uniform, and have been asked to be present in the District Health Society and District Health Mission meeting as observers from the State Directorate. 5. Elaborate guidelines of implementation of all the line items under RCH-II & NRHM Additionalities have been prepared in kannada language and issued to the districts for guidance under the joint signature of Commissioner and Mission Director, thereby providing right signals to the implementing units with the much needed unity and clarity in command. 6. "Group SIMs" have been provided to all the officers of the Health Directorate, NRHM, KHSDRP and SPMU at the State and all the officers of the District for trouble free communication and continuous monitoring. 3.12.7. ROAD MAP AHEAD: a. Integrating the RTI & STI / Blood bank / TB with the MCH. b. Strengthening of SPMU, DPMU & BPMU through training, regular structured review of programs through the analysis of feedback from the report of nodal officers and through data based management. c. The Group SIM facility is going be extended to all the Taluka Health Officers and BPMU in the year 2009-10. d. Further consolidating the different management activities, expertise and gains accrued so far. e. The "BLOCK HEALTH RESOURCE CENTRE" (BHRC) at Taluk level is a new concept to effectively decentralize the planning, programming, implementation, review and evaluation of all the NRHM and other Health activities, through the participation of the locally positioned manpower, both Government & Non-Government, but under the overall programme goal, objective and direction and further made accountable for the output and outcome rather than input, infrastructure and process. 3.12.8.

3.13.QUALITY ASSURANCE PROGRAMME 3.13.1 Background: Quality Assurance can be defined as mechanism / process that contributes to defining designing, assessing, monitoring and improving the quality of health care. These activities can be performed as part of the accreditation of facilities, supervision of health workers or other efforts to improve performance of health workers and the quality of health services. Hence QA applies broadly to an entire cycle of assessments which extends beyond problem identification, to verification of the problem, identification of what is correctable initiation of innervations / improvement and continual review to assure that identified problems have been adequately corrected, quality of services improved and no further problems have been engendered in the process. 6.2 The Quality Assurance Programme is made up of two main components: · · Quality Assessments Quality improvement

The Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) framework of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW) for the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) has proposed to introduce the Quality Assurance (QA) program for assessing and improving of the quality of services at public sector health facilities. FRONTIERS program of Population Council and UNFPA jointly developed a QA manual and tested in Gujarat and Maharashtra to demonstrate that QA could be easily integrated at district level management (Leila. Khan, Agarwal and Sharma, 2006). Subsequently, QA program has been scaled-up in all the 25 districts of Gujarat (Khan, Mishra, Sharma and Varkey, 2008). Appreciating the potentiality of QA checklists in improving quality of care, the MOHFW is currently pilot testing slightly modified version of QA tools in six states, including Karnataka and Maharashtra. The revised QA manual also covers a wider service delivery network by including sub-centers and RCH camps in the QA program. FRONTIERS Program of Population Council with financial support from UNFPA is providing technical assistance to the states of Maharashtra and Karnataka in implementing the QA program and helping its institutionalization in the district level management. During first round of visits, the DQAG had established the mechanism to monitor and assess the extent the facilities have taken initiative to address the gaps identified by QA visits. The review of the `actions taken' showed that facilities were using findings of the QA visits for improving functioning of their facilities. For example, analysis reveled that 48 percent of the suggested actions at CHC/PHC in Tumkur have already been taken. 97

Similarly, in case of sub-centers, the process of filling service delivery gaps has started in the district. A review showed that half of the gaps (50 percent) identified in Tumkur subcenters have already been addressed (Khan et al, 2008). Analysis of the activities executed indicates that no-cost actions, which are mostly to be taken at facility level, can be quickly executed as compared to the cost actions for which the district or state require more time for allocating resources or taking approval before executing them. It is encouraging to note that beside no-cost actions many cost actions had also been attended. For example, in Tumkur more than one-third (37 percent) of the cost actions for CHC/PHCs had been executed. After initial difficulties, now the QA activities have been fully linked with NRHM and the required resources for quality improvement are obtained through district program Implementation program (DPIP) mechanism. The revisits to facilities had started from February 2008 in Tumkur district. Quality of QA Visits FRONTIERS staff regularly accompanied the QA teams on rotational basis to monitor the quality of QA visits and to provide hands-on TA to team members. The attributes for classifying `good' quality visit are given in Box 1. Absence of two or more of the quality attributes were classified as `average' or `poor' visit. During the first quarter FRONTIERS staff accompanied 9 QA visits, the analysis shows that majority of the visits (88 percent) were of `good' quality and rest (12 percent) were marked as `average'. On an average five facility staff attended the pre-assessment briefing. During all 9 visits, the QA team leader debriefed the facility in-charge. In general, the observations on the debriefing sessions with facility in-charge were generally precise, all gaps were pointed out and action points were listed and discussed. All this indicate that QA visit to a great extent has institutionalized in the district health system and the capacity of district officials has adequately developed to conduct and use QA visits for quality improvement. Key Service Delivery Gaps during Second Round of Visits The key gaps identified at CHC/PHCs and sub-centers are as following (a) Gaps observed at PHCs Training · MOs need training in EmOC, sterilization and MTP Infrastructure · Functional OT to conduct sterilization operations to be made available, · Vehicle and Generator with POL need to be arranged Equipments and Supplies · Equipments required such as Autoclave, Oxygen cylinder, MVA syringe, · Reagents such as gram staining and RPR kits are required · Short supply of medicines and consumables such as Tab. Azithromycin, Inj. Magnesium Sulphate, Glutaraldehyde concentrate and ECPs. Records · Records need to be properly maintained and regularly updated such as ECP usage, vehicle log book


(b) Gaps observed at Sub-centers Equipments and supplies · Short supply of equipments such as Baby Ambu bag, Centchroman, ECPs etc. Service delivery process · Providers need to be instructed to use Parthograph, counseling of women. Records · Referrals register for the low birth weight newborns need to be maintained. Number of Actions Identified and Responsibility Assigned The analysis of gaps identified and actions suggested by QA teams during the QA visits made in the first quarter (Feb­March) of 2008 indicates that in Tumkur, on an average 26 action points ­ nine at facility level and 17 at district level­were suggested for RH/PHCs. Similarly on an average 13 action points for sub-centers ­ nine at facility level and four at district level were identified to improve the quality of service delivery. Analysis of QA Data Overall Facility Grades: The analysis of overall facility scores from first and second round of visits shows remarkable improvements in facility grades. While during first round only nine percent of CHC/PHCs in Tumkur were in Grade A (scored more than 75 percent of the total score), 48 percent in Grade B (scored 51-75 percent of the total score), and remaining 43 percent were in Grade C (26-50 percent of the total score), in the second round the facilities scoring grade A increased to 38 percent and 62 percent scored grade B (Figure 1).

At individual facility level analysis shows that that all the facilities in the district scored higher grades during second visit as compared to their corresponding grades obtained in the first visit. Average score of the facilities visited increased by 25 percent points in CHC/PHCs (from 49 to 74 percent) and 27 percent points in sub-centers, from 53 to 80 percent (See figures 3 and 4).

To get insight into the gaps causing lower facility grades, the `input' and `process' scores have been separately analyzed and presented below. The elements relating to facility readiness such as, human resources, infrastructure, equipments and supplies and availability of service delivery protocols have been grouped together as `inputs'. Similarly, the elements relating to the service delivery environment and procedures are have been grouped together as `processes". These include cleanliness, infection prevention practices, maintenance of records and maintaining the hygiene and asepsis among others. Inputs: The analysis of input grades of CHC/PHCs shows facility readiness and availability of human resources to provide quality RCH services have improved significantly in the district between first and second round of visits. While during first round of visits, only 6 percent of CHC/PHCs scored input grade A, it increased to 31 percent in the second round of visits (Figure 5). The facilities scoring C grade reduced from 43 percent in the first round to 6 percent in the second round.

The inputs score of sub-centers also increased significantly in between first and second round of visits. While during first round majority of sub-centers (87 percent) scored B


grade or lower, three-fourths of them achieved A grade during second round of visits (Figure 6).

6.7 State's Decision to Scale-up the QI initiative in Five More Districts Impressed by the QA visits bringing improvements in quality of service delivery, Principal Secretary, Health and family welfare, Government of Karnataka has decided to scale-up quality improvement activities in the entire state in the phased manner. As the first step, the state health department has decided to scale-up the QA program in five more districts of Karnataka and remaining CHC/PHCs and sub-centers of Tumkur district. The state health department has also asked the districts to allocate resources required for conducting the QA visits and initiate actions identified by these visits in their district PIP. The state health department has requested the Population Council to extend the technical assistance in scaling up of QA in five districts. Although the Population Council is willing to extend the TA to state health department, the resources required for TA such as field staff salary, travel cost. Etc. are the constraints and it need to be arranged either by the government through making provision of TA in NRHM program implementation plan, or through support from development partners. Presently with limited resources, Population Council is providing TA to the state to constitute and train the district quality assurance groups (DQAGs) in the scale-up districts.


6.8 Conclusions Readiness (infrastructure supplies and trained human resources) of the health facilities at all level has shown significant improvement which is an important requisite for providing quality services. The process component which actually address to the quality of delivering services has also shown improvement but at a lot more initiative from district health management is required. It is primarily because it demands behavioral change, adherence to clinical standards and adoption of good practices. To accelerate the improvement in the processes, supportive supervision need to be strengthened and more attention should be given to review the process part. Scaling up of quality improvement initiatives to five more districts of Karnataka shows state health department's commitment to provide quality services from public health facilities in the entire state. The state health department has requested for TA from Population Council to scale-up the QA program in these five districts. Population Council is willing to provide the TA to state but the resources required for TA provision need to be worked out. We feel that either the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare should allocate the resources for TA in the NRHM program implementation plan or the ministry collaborates with the donor agencies to support the TA cost of Population Council staff. Integration of the QA program with DPIP and drawing resources from NRHM to conduct QA activities is an important achievement. It ensures that available fund with state/district/facility level is being used for improving the access and quality of services.
