Healthcare Summit Rajasthan 2017 – Dr Jitendra Mehta, Chief Nodal Officer, Government of Jammu & Kashmir
Under the current programme structure in the country, out of 20 ASHAs at the community level the best ASHA is made the facilitator.
We have three replicable interventions in the current structure of the State health system. Under the current programme structure in the country, out of 20 ASHAs at the community level the best ASHA is made the facilitator. The structure goes like this: ASHAs, ASHA facilitator, block community mobiliser, district community mobiliser and State programme mobiliser. In J&K, we have decided that we will not make ASHA an ASHA facilitator because in 20 village areas there will be 3-5 ANMs and around 30-40 Anganwadi workers. The one intervention we did here was we have an ANM ASHA worker, who is more powerful than ASHA worker and Anaganwadi worker at the community level.
