Pilot Phase


Pilot Phase
The pilot phase of community monitoring was implemented in 1,620 villages across 36 districts in nine states between 2007 and 2009 under the guidance of the Advisory Group on Community Action (AGCA), constituted by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. The Population Foundation of India (PFI) hosts the Secretariat for the AGCA. The AGCA currently provides technical support to states to scale up community monitoring. A review by an external panel of public health experts and the National Resource Health Centre of the first phase demonstrated:

  • Awareness of health entitlements among the community and responsiveness of the health department led to an improved range and quality of services.
  • Strengthening of Village Health Sanitation and Nutrition Committee’s provided a voice to the community, especially the marginalized groups.
  • Community involvement helped health workers overcome service delivery constraints and in more effective local planning.
