Women, Children and the poor are the focus groups that need to be addressed by the state’s health system and efforts are directed in ensuring wide coverage. Broadly such efforts are based on the following principles: -

(a) Meeting the needs of the district population by making the health delivery system more pro-poor, gender sensitive and client friendly and by responding to the high burden of preventable diseases among the poor, women, socially disadvantaged groups such as S.C.s, S.T.s and minorities.

(b) Focus on efficiency and improving efforts by emphasizing quality and accountability of health services in the Government health system as well as private sector.

(c) Promote decentralization of decision-making and collaboration with the Panchayati Raj institutions, urban local bodies and civil society organizations as well as develop inter-sector collaboration with other governments. Much emphasis for improvement in nutrition, education, water and sanitation programs has been laid as well as integration of the various health programs and mainstreaming of activities within the different branches of the health system.
