Primary Health centres get new lease of life under PPP model

IMPHAL, May 21: Running of the primary health centres at  Borobekra  under Jiribam Sub-Division of Imphal East district as well as at Tousem under Tame-nglong district, which are lagging far behind in health care sector in comparison to other parts of the State, have been started under Public Private Partnership (PPP) along with entrusting the task to an NGO.

According to an official source, the onus of running the two primary health centres have been taken up by the Bangalore based Karuna Trust with effect from May 1. The initiative has been taken up by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India for the first time in Manipur with an eye on ensuring proper health care services to the people living in remote and backward areas under the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM).

The expenses on running the two health centres are to be bore by the Government with funding from NRHM while the required staff are to be appointed by the NGO at its own discretion. In running these two health centres, the NGO would not be charging any fee from the patients, the source explained, adding that the step has been taken up to ensure proper health care service to the people.
