DIMAPUR — A review meeting of the programmes and activities under the National Health Mission, Nagaland, took place on Thursday at the conference hall of the Directorate of Health and Family Welfare, Kohima.

According to a press release, the meeting was attended by the Minister of Health and Family Welfare, P Paiwang Konyak, and the Commissioner and Secretary, V Kezo.

Speaking on the occasion, Paiwang said that such meetings provide the opportunity to express problems and concerns, allowing everyone to come together and devise solutions.

Commenting on the financial challenges, he emphasised that financial allocations should align with the needs and priorities of the various programmes. He called for timely sharing of activity updates from the different programme officers in the coming days, stressing the importance of collaboration for the successful implementation of health programmes in the state.

Kezo remarked that they need to remind each other to stay focused and pointed out the importance of the Department in communicating issues of importance to the concerned minister and the commissioner and secretary. This, he said, would enable them to become involved in advancing activities that will benefit the department.

He stated that, as a fraternity, the department needs to come together, discuss issues, make efforts, and establish a clear vision and goal. Kezo also mentioned that healthcare management will now adhere to the Indian Public Health Standard Norms (IPHS).

Principal Director, Dr. E Motsuthung Patton, appealed to all the programme officers present, stating that unless they achieve their targets and improve indicators, the state will not receive the complete funds from the government of India, thus potentially hindering programme implementation.

Dr. Akuo Sorhie, Mission Director, National Health Mission, Nagaland, who also spoke on the occasion, gave an overview of the mission.
