Holding Public Health System Accountable

Partner: SATHI (Support for Advocacy and Training to Health Initiatives)











  In Maharastra villagers use pictorial report cards to keep attendance of doctors and nurses in the Primary Healthcare Centres (PHC) and also do audits of the availability of medical supplies. This community based monitoring not only makes the system effective but turns the poor from just being beneficiaries to active participants in the system.
