Systemic Health Mechanisms
In spite of heavy budgetary investments, the maternal health indicators in the country have improved at a pace, which is below expectations. Health experts have also pointed out a severe lack of quality in the available healthcare services. One of the major reasons for this has been inadequate efficiency and monitoring of the existing systems. To address this situation, various systemic structures instituted by the Central Government for various purposes can be leveraged to ensure sustainable quality of care along with accountability, community participation and transparency. These mechanisms can help in effective monitoring of the services provided and can be used to guide and direct healthcare at the grassroots level.
