Chief Ministers of Northeast meeting next week

Special Correspondent

Special strategy chalked out for the region, identified as a priority area

NEW DELHI: Chief Ministers of the north-eastern States will come together at the launch of the National Rural Health Mission for the region in Guwahati next week. At a conclave after the launch of the mission, the Chief Ministers will explain the special needs of their States.

Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Anbumani Ramadoss will formally launch the mission on November 9. The north-eastern region is one of the priority areas of the mission, and hence a special strategy has been chalked out to cater to its needs. Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare Panaba Lakshmi will also address the conclave.

The Chief Ministers of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim and Tripura will be given a presentation on the mission. The delegates will have an open session and other Central Departments relating to Drinking Water and Sanitation, Rural Development, and the North-Eastern Council will also speak of the programmes and strategies.

The strategy for the region includes Annual State Action Plans for the utilisation of the North-East Funds, empowered groups to examine the State Action Plans and the setting up of a Regional Resource Centre at Guwahati. Pilot runs would be made on an experimental basis before launching the programme in a big way.

There has been a shortfall in health infrastructure as per the 1991 population and the 2001 census. To enhance this, the Centre has decided to increase outlay for public health in the region.
