Free Drug Service:

One of the stellar initiatives in the health sector launched by the Government of India during the year 2013-14 is the “National Health Mission – Free Drug Service”. It is aimed at providing effective healthcare support to the needy and giving them access to essential medicines free of cost at Government Health Institutions and Hospitals.

Over the years, cost of healthcare in the country has gone up significantly putting tremendous strain on the public, particularly the rural populace. In order to ease the financial burden of the common people seeking relief from various ailments, National Health Mission Assam has implemented the scheme of providing essential drugs &surgical free of cost at all Government Health Institutions. Now in accordance with General ailments, NHM, Assam has also being committed for taking care of their patient from the life threatening diseases like cancer, hemophilia, neonatal, thelesemia, neurological, cardiological, nephrological disorders etc.

The essential drugs are procured in generic form and provided free of cost to all OPD and IPD patients in Government hospitals in Assam. Both the Central and State Government provide budgetary support for this initiative of providing essential drugs free of cost to patients visiting Government hospitals.

In view of Sustainable Development Goals of GoI to achieve universal health coverage, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all categories of patient , Assam State has notified the modified Essential Drugs List (EDL) where nos. of free drugs has been increased from 238 to 731 (as per strength & dosage form 731 against 407 category) at tertiary level to treat communicable and non-communicable diseases with a broader view to ease the all financial burden of the common people seeking relief from various ailments as well as those diseases where the drug-treatment therapy is found too costly for a BPL as well as APL family. Hence, Government of Assam had implemented the scheme of providing essential drugs &surgicals almost of all categories free of cost at all Government Health Institutions including PHC/CHC/DH/Medical colleges spread over 33 districts of the State and a new EDL has been notified taking the standard of National Essential Drug List (NELM).

1) Essential Drug List (EDL)

The State has its own Essential Drugs List (EDL) on the basis of which procurement action is taken. The facility wise details of the EDL notified by the Govt. of Assam on 05.09.2016 are as under:

The online Drugs Stock Monitoring System serves the limited purpose of ascertaining stock position of various drugs in different health institutions and for initiating action for replenishing stocks as and when needed. Action is taken at state level for replenishment of stock either through fresh infusion or through diversion of stock from a location with a surplus to a location with a deficit.

Operation Smile:

Operation Smile - Free Surgery for children having cleft palate and lip
The estimated number of clefts in Assam is a figure which varies in the range of 20,000 to 30,000 being the backlog of patients in the State and around 1000 to 1200 patients being born every year.

"Operation Smile" since January 2009 has been partnering with the Government of Assam to provide free surgeries to cleft patients of the State to fulfill the Agreement with the Government (signed in May 2009) through a Public Private Partnership model to make Assam a “cleft free” State.

Mrityunjoy-108 Ambulance Service:

In the changing life styles, an integration of multiple services to provide quick and comprehensive emergency response is required. Further, with increase in the number of road traffic accidents, high rate of birth related emergencies, bomb blast and other calamities demand a centralized emergency management system. Although there are referral transports available in the health facility but their services always do not address all the medical emergencies and cater very few of the rural population. Looking at the demand for comprehensive emergency system Govt. of Assam has entered into a MoU with the GVK-EMRI, Hyderabad on 8th July, 2008. The 108 Mrityunjoy Emergency Response Services was formally inaugurated on 6th November, 2008 at Guwahati. The objective of the partnership is to improve access of the general public to services like Medical, Police and Fire.The Mrityunjoy-108 Emergency Response Services is 24 x 7 functional with dedicated team members. Dialing ‘108’ the toll free emergency number, the emergency call lands at Emergency Response Centre (ERC). From there the call is processed depending on the emergency and location of the caller and is dispatched to the Ambulance located nearest to the site of emergency.
Each Ambulance is manned by a ‘Pilot’ and an ‘Emergency Medical Technician’ (EMT) who is a trained para-medic capable of providing pre- hospital care while transporting the patient to the hospital.

18 numbers of 108 services are available in our district.


PPP with Tea-Garden Hospital

The Scheme:

The tea community is one of the marginalized and socially excluded groups in Assam. They remain unnerved in terms of basic health care facilities adding to high diseases burden and mortality rate.To address the issue National Health Mission (NHM), Assam has executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Tea Garden Hospitals under Public Private Partnership (PPP) with a purpose to be made available of the health care services to all the employees of the tea gardens and its adjoining areas. The scheme was launched in the year 2007-08 in Assam. Initially a total of 50 numbers of tea garden hospitals were brought under the umbrella of NHM, Assam and gradually the remaining  tea estates.At present it is being implemented by 150 numbers of  tea garden hospitals of which 15 number belongs to Cachar,  Dibrugarh-37,Golaghat-12, Jorhat-9, Lakhimpur-8, Morigaon-1, Nagaon-7, Sivasagar-16, Sonitpur-21, Tinsukia-17 and Udalguri-7.

The focused areas of the scheme are-

1. To provide maternal and child health care,
2. Emergency services,
3. Referral services,
4.Taken care of communicable and non-communicable diseases and
5.Developing of existing infrastructure in the tea garden hospitals.

The scheme funds for salary/incentive of doctors and paramedics engaged in tea garden hospitals. The financial assistance has also been beneficial in renovating existing hospital infrastructure, for purchase of equipments, augmentation of hospital and to improve service delivery. Medicines are being provided free of cost to these tea garden hospitals. An Ambulance was also given to each tea garden hospital of PPP mode for referral service purpose. 


An agreement has been signed between the District Health Society and the Tea Garden Hospital Management Society to initiate the scheme. As per the MoU, the tea garden hospital would adhere to the schematic guidelines and norms as cited by National Health Mission, Assam.

Presently an amount of Rs.7.5 lakh was allocated to each tea garden hospital as central assistance under PPP. As per norms the fund is released in two installments.1st installment in signing of MoU and 2nd installment is being released after submitting UC and SoE of 1st installment.

The Tea garden hospitals are required to send monthly reports on physical progress on key deliverables and financial achievements in a format prescribed, NHM, Assam.

Inclusion of tea gardens hospitals under PPP with NHM, Assam highlights the intention of the Govt. of Assam to offer better health care and medical facilities to the workers and non-workers of tea gardens and its adjoining areas. Presently 150 (Year: 2015-16) nos of tea gardens are covered under PPP. NHM, Assam is aiming to cover more numbers of tea garden hospitals in near future. 



Improving the maternal and child health and their survival are central to the achievement of national health goals under the National Health Mission (NHM) as well as the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) 4 and 5. SDG Goal 3 also includes the focus on reducing maternal, newborn and child mortality. In the past seven years, innovative strategies evolved under the national programme to deliver evidence-based interventions to various population groups.
A substantial increase in the availability of financial resources for Reproductive and Child Health (RCH), healthcare infrastructure and workforce as also the expansion of programme management capacity since the launch of NRHM in 2005 provides an important opportunity to consolidate all our efforts. As we had crossed the 2015 year where we have to reach the MDG goals but we are far away from the goals. There is an opportunity to further accelerate progress towards MDG and SDG goals, redefine the national agenda to come up with a coordinated approach to maternal and child health in the upcoming years.
In order to bring greater impact through the RCH programme, it is important to recognize that reproductive, maternal and child health cannot be addressed in isolation as these are closely linked to the health status of the population in various stages of life cycle. The health of an adolescent girl impacts pregnancy while the health of a pregnant woman impacts the health of the newborn and the child. As such, interventions may be required at various stages of life cycle, which should be mutually linked. And hence, on the basis of available data and the close inter-linkages between different stages of life cycle RMNCH+A strategy is introduced. It constitutes to the 'Continuum of Care' approach of defining and implementing evidence-based packages of services for different stages of the lifecycle, at various levels in the health system, has been adopted under the national health programme. This strategic approach includes Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child Plus Adolescent Health (RMNCH+A). The 'Plus' in the strategic approach denotes the (1) inclusion of adolescence as a distinct 'life stage' in the overall strategy; (2) linking of maternal and child health to reproductive health and other components (like family planning, adolescent health, HIV, gender and Preconception and Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques (PC&PNDT); and (3) linking of community and facility-based care as well as referrals between various levels of health care system to create a continuous care pathway, and to bring an additive /synergistic effect in terms of overall outcomes and impact.
Programmes under RMNCH+A

1. Reproductive Health

a) Family Planning

b) Safe abortions/ Comprehensive abortion care services

2. Maternal Health

3. Newborn Health

4. Child Health


5. Adolescent Health

b)Adolescent Friendly Health Clinics 


Three (3) numbers of counselors are there in the district.


RashtriyaBalSwasthyaKaryakram (RBSK):

From “Survival to Healthy Survival”, the National Health Mission has made significant progress in Child Mortality rate. Whereas there is an advance in reducing child mortality there is a dire need to improving survival outcome.

According to March of Dimes (2006), out of every 100 babies born in this country annually, 6 to 7 have a birth defect. This would translate to around 17 lakhs birth defects annually in the country and accounts for 9.6% of all the newborn deaths. Various nutritional deficiencies affecting the preschool children range from 4 per cent to 70 per cent. Developmental delays are common in early childhood affecting at least 10 percent of the children. These delays if not intervened timely may lead to permanent disabilities including cognitive, hearing or vision impairment. Also, there are group of diseases common in children viz. dental caries, rheumatic heart disease, reactive airways diseases etc. Early detection and management diseases including deficiencies bring added value in preventing these conditions to progress to its more severe and debilitating form and thereby reducing hospitalization and improving implementation of Right to Education.

RashtriyaBalSwasthyaKaryakram (RBSK) is an important initiative aiming at early identification and early intervention for children from birth to 18 years to cover 4 ‘D’s viz. Defects at birth, Deficiencies, Diseases, Development delays including disability. This aim to improve survival outcomes by decreasing morbidity and improving the quality of life of our children. This programme will reach infants born at public health facilities and at home, covering a significant proportion of the annual birth cohort. In addition, children enrolled under Anganwadi centers and Government schools & Government aided schools are being reached systematically through Mobile Health Teams under RBSK. Thus, early identification of various health condition under RBSK, assured linkage to care, support and early treatment introduces equitable child health care approach which will, in the long run, reduce out of pocket expenditures, reduce the burden of disease, improve awareness and promote health & development amongst the children.

Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) for TG:


1. Assam is the highest tea producer state in the country with 55% of the total production. About 20% of the total population of Assam belongs to the tea growing communities. They are one of the most backward communities in Assam.

2. Though, as per The Plantations Labour Act 1951 and the Assam Plantations Labour Rules, 1956, a healthcare service in Tea Garden is the responsibility of Tea Garden Management. But in reality, major chunk of the Tea garden population is deprived of proper healthcare facility. Many studies have revealed that Assam is facing a very high Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR) and in the districts with high tea garden population, MMR is very high (404 per Lakh live births).
3. In order to provide comprehensive primary health care services along with diagnostics facilities, NHM Assam had submitted a proposal to GOI for health facilities exclusively for the Tea Garden areas through deployment of 80 dedicated Mobile Medical Units (MMUs).The Scheme is envisaged to be implemented in an outsourced model, prescribed as per GOI norms, through M/s Hindustan Latex Family Planning Promotion Trust (HLFPPT) which has been selected through open tendering process. The projected annual expenditure will be 29.59 crores.

4. Each MMU consists of two (2) vehicles. First vehicle will be equipped with OPD and laboratory facilitates, IEC material and second vehicle will be used for transportation of MMU Team.
5. Each MMU will have one Medical Officer, one ANM, one Pharmacist, one Laboratory Technician, one Ophthalmic Technician, two Drivers and one Handyman.
