					Workshop on Quality, Equity & Accountability

             6 September 2009
What good does it serve to treat people’s illnesses
and…………… send them right back to the conditions which
made them sick in the first place
Why Health Equity?

 ………………..Poor health is not confined to those worst
 off. In countries at all levels of income, health and illness
 follow a social gradient: the lower the socio-economic
 position, the worse the health……It doesn’t have to be this
 way and it isn’t right that should be like this. Where
 systematic differences in health are judged to be avoidable by
 reasonable action they are, quite simply, unfair…….Putting
 right these inequities, between and within countries-is a
 matter of social justice…….an ethical
 imperative……….Social injustice is killing people on a
 grand scale………………..
Some Definitions:

 “Inequities are differences in health that are
  unnecessary, avoidable, unfair and unjust.” –
  Margaret Whitehead
 “Equal opportunity of use of health services for
  equal need” – Newbrander and Collins
 NRHM provides the oppurtunity:
 Exercising Principle of Subsidiarity
 Putting Money where the mouth is:
   Financing Innovations
   Evaluations in the most challenging locales
Service Provision Challenges in Madhya Pradesh

 Distance: 3.3kms/health worker
 Road penetration of MP: 52/100 km2 Vs All India Av
  75/100 km2
 Scarcity of Qualified HR
 Infrastructure (Bed strength has been increased by 8000)
  since launch of NRHM
 Tribal Areas
 Data Dissagregation
 Planning Capacity at district and sub-district level
 Convergence with determinant departments
 Lack of Awareness-Real Access Barrier
Though GoMP has initaited specialised
programmes for specific vulnerable groups, we
do not believe in:

 Categories of Inequity
 Creating competition between the
 Gate-keeping criteria which results in
GoMP responses:

   Hospitalisation to the cap of Rs 150,000
GoMP responses contd…..
 Data disagregation of JSY beneficiaries initiated:
  SC/ST and BPL
 State PIP and DHAP planning has centre-staged
  equity into the planning (facilitation guidelines
 ANMTCs’ capacity and graduates increased
 HR deployment in difficult areas: Building
  consensus on definition
GoMP responses:
 TAST supported composite revised health index
 Weighted Composite of HDI + JSK + Sex ratio + Tribal and
  SC population + Malnutrition prevalence + Population
 10 most marginalized districts identified for focused action
  to strengthen the systems
 10/30 CEmONCs and 76/94 BEmONCs functional.
