SCHOOL HEALTH PROGRAMME (SHP) IN MIZORAM


I. Background :
The National School Health Programme was launched in 1977 as a Centrally Sponsored Schemme. In Mizoram it was started in 1978 in Selected PHC till 1991. After the Centrally Sponsored Scheme was ended in 1991, from 1993 the programme was taken up by the State, and the programme was extended to all PHC, CHC where Medical Officer (MO) were posted and also in the Urban area in all the Capital of the Districts in the State. The programme thrust is based on general health of the school going children and to take remedial measures and follow up. The programme specifically covers the primary School Children run by the Government only and the beneficiaries are the students of Nursery to class IV. The funds are from the State Plan and Non-Plan funds, which are very minimal to cater to the proper functioning of the School Health Programme.
Presently, it is proposed that the beneficiaries would be school students of classes I to XII, to be funded under the NRHM for better achievement in the SHP as carried out in most of other states of the Country. Project has been submitted for approval in the NRHM PIP (Programme Implementation Plan) for 2011-2012.
