Abolition of Vertical Programme Societies and Integration with State Health Society

The Mission Director, NRHM has sent a proposal stating that while launching the NRHM during April 2005, various individual health and family welfare programmes such as Reproductive Child Health (RCH), National Disease Control Programmes and other additionalities supported by Government of India were subsumed under NRHM. Government of India had also indicated that all the Societies shall be integrated under NRHM and to constitute an Integrated Sate Health Society. He has further stated that Government of Andhra Pradesh has constituted five (5) individual Societies under the following programmes:-

1. National Leprosy Eradication Programme (NLEP)
2. Revised National TB Control Programme (RNTCP)
3. National Programme for Control of Blindness (NPCB)
4. National Iodine Deficiency Disease Control Programme (NIDDCP)
5. National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (NVBDCP)

The Mission Director, NRHM has also stated that funds are being directly credited to the individual accounts operated by the above 5 National Disease Control Programme Societies and further releases to the district level functionaries independently. However, the Government of India, while launching the NRHM, has directed to integrate all the individual programme societies and reposition the National programmes under the common umbrella of NRHM. In partial compliance to the directions, the consolidated programme implementation plans (PIPs) were prepared for all the programmes including National Disease Control Programmes without merging the societies physically. Further, Government of India has issued guidelines on financial, accounting, auditing, fund flow duly integrating financial process of the state and district level. Under integrated state health society system, the funds are to be electronically transferred to the district health societies under major pools (RCH, Mission, PPI, SRI and NDCPs). The Government of India has observed that the individual programmes have not been integrated under the District Health Societies, that lack of integration is resulting in problems in arriving at the total funds disbursed and utilized by the district health societies and that integration is absolutely necessary for common reporting monitoring and utilization of funds. Further, individual programme societies have also engaged manpower in different cadres to man the societies and also handle the physical & financial issues. The HR available with the different societies are being paid remunerations without any parity between the programmes.

The Mission Director, NRHM has further stated that a meeting has been convened with all the concerned programme officers for this purpose and it has been decided to integrate all the individual programme societies with the State Health Society along with its assets and liabilities. The HR available with the individual societies are to be rationalized and shall be redeployed to the SPMU at State level and DPMU at district level for effective utilization of available HR.

He has, therefore, requested the Government to consider for abolition of vertical programme societies and to integrate them with State Health Society.

Government after careful examination of the matter hereby accept the proposal of the Mission Director, NRHM, Hyderabad and order for abolition of the following vertical programme societies and to integrate them with State Health Society with immediate effect:-

1. National Leprosy Eradication Programme (NLEP)
2. Revised National TB Control Programme (RNTCP)
3. National Programme for Control of Blindness (NPCB)
4. National Iodine Deficiency Disease Control Programme (NIDDCP)
5. National Vector Born Disease Control Programme (NVBDCP)

The Mission Director, NRHM, Hyderabad shall send a consolidated audit report from the common auditor to the Government of India as desired and to send the consolidated FMR and the statement of funds position for all programmes in the prescribed proforma to the Government of India as desired.

The Commissioner of Health and Family Welfare, A.P. Hyderabad / The Mission Director, NRHM, A.P., Hyderabad shall take necessary action in the matter.
