No such observation of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India has come to the notice of the Ministry of Health & FW in the recent past. Public Health is a state subject. Financial support is provided to States under National Rural Health Mission [NRHM] to strengthen the health system based on the requirements proposed by the States in their annual Programme Implementation Plans. The implementation of the approved plans is monitored by respective State/District Health Societies.  Review at the national level is done through quarterly reports on physical and financial progress of approved activities.

 

This information was given in written reply by the Minister of State for Health & Family Welfare Shri Sudip Bandyopadhyay in Lok Sabha today.
