Workshop on Decentralized Expenditure Tracking and Monitoring in National Rural Health Mission

Decentralisation, communitisation and accountability are key principles of NRHM and there are mechanisms which promote this including; district planning, community monitoring, institutions like the Rogi Kalyan Samilti and Village Health and Sanitation Committees and the mechanism of Untied Funds. In the first phase of the NRHM which is drawing to a close, some initiatives were taken to ensure accountability through the mechanism of community monitoring, however there were no ‘official’ mechanisms for financial accountability which included a strong role for communities. Independent efforts were made by some civil society organizations to test and pilot different mechanisms for financial accountability including the review of untied fund spending, district planning, and community based expenditure awareness, tracking of supplies and medicines and so on. This workshop was organized to bring together some of the organizations who have been involved in such experiments and to share experiences and find ways to take this process forward.
