Memo No. H/SFWB/713(18), date: 29.06.2012
1 -18. The Chief Medical Officer of Health (All districts)
Sub: Reporting of performance under RCH by ULBs & JSY
This is for your information that about 30%-35% population of an ULB is covered by ULB under HHW scheme thus it is not expected that Health Officer of ULB will be able to report for the total population of that ULB. Besides there is a problem faced by Health Officer of ULB as to in which format the performance report will be submitted by them to the respective district health authority.
Now as resolved in a meeting with SUDA on 28/06/2012, it has been decided that
(1) The sub centre run by ULB will report its performance (only the performance of the clinic which has actually done at the clinic throughout the month and not the performance of their field work) in the sub centre reporting format as existing for State run sub centre. The compiled report of the entire sub centre along with the performance report of the Maternity Home if available will be submitted by the Health Officer to the respective district health authority monthly within first week of the next month in PHC reporting format.
(2) The JSY card that has to use by ULB was designed by Department of Health & Family Welfare and shared with SUDA. It has brought to the notice of the undersigned that payment after institutional delivery is not been done by some of the health institutions as the card is to some extent different from the card used by the sub centre. This is highly irregular. All the public health institutions may kindly be informed that the card used by ULB is valid and payment can be made based on the card.
(3) In some of the districts, by violating government order, district health authority tried to provide fund for payment to JSY beneficiaries to ULBs from the available fund lying with them. The policy of the government is – “State will provide fund to SUDA who in turn will distribute the same to ULBs. ULB will submit the performance report and utilization of fund to SUDA who after compilation will submit to State.”
As the health wing of ULB is a supporting partner of the department of Health and Family Welfare in respect of providing services to the community it is expected that district health authority will provide necessary logistic support like Vaccine, Syringes, FP materials etc. Please share the Memo with all concerned.
