NMHP becomes part of NCD.

With the cabinet decision today to prune centrally sponsored schemes (CSS), NMHP becomes part of NCD. The noncommunicable diseases program (NCD) will include the following programs as per Planning Commissions draft document. 1. Cancer control program. 2. NMHP 3. National program for Diabetes, Cardiovascular diseases and Stroke 4. Health care of elderly. 5. Assistance for states in capacity building in Trauma. 6. 8 pilot projects. (Official communication awaited)

However as per this document the entire CSS under the health sector will be collapsed into one “National Health Mission including NRHM”

Report of committee on restructuring of CSS. An interesting excerpt

The monitoring by Ministries and independent evaluation of schemes is generally poor in CSS due to gaps in design of scheme, lack of ownership amongst States. No emphasis is being laid on outcomes or impact of these schemes through independent assessment/evaluation
