The Policy Unit of the National Institute of Health and Family Welfare (NIHFW), the USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP), the National Health Systems Resource Centre (NHSRC), and the Government of the State of Uttarakhand conducted a study to understand the effectiveness of National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) financing in terms of allocation, disbursement, efficiency, and utilization. The study was designed to identify barriers in the flow of NRHM funds from state to district and sub-district levels of the public health system in Uttarakhand State. It found evidence of highly centralized, top-down planning, despite NRHM’s intent for a bottom-up approach. The state often does not allocate funds according to district requests, and below the district level funds are not fully utilized. There is some evidence that expenditures were efficient in that resource use was connected with performance. This study is the follow-on report to Effectiveness of Fund Allocation and Spending for the National Rural Health Mission in Uttarakhand, India: State and District Report.
