Central Budget Allocates Rs.99.47 Bn Proposal for Rural Health Mission

New Delhi: The central budget for 2007-08 Wednesday proposes an increase in the allocation for the flagship National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) from Rs.82.07 billion in 2006-07 to Rs.99.47 billion in 2007-08. //

Presenting the budget, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram said in parliament that major emphasis would be on mother and child care and prevention of communicable diseases like tuberculosis and malaria.

Polio, which witnessed a surge in 2006 with 666 cases, has also been integrated with the NRHM and Rs.12.90 billion has been allocated to eliminate the disease.

Traditional healing systems like aurveda, yoga, naturopathy, unani, sidha, and homeopathy are being mainstreamed into the health delivery system at all levels.

Chidambaram also promised that his government would undertake determined efforts to achieve zero level of growth in HIV/AIDS.

Under the renewed effort, the National AIDS Control Programme - III (NACP-III), starting 2007-08 would target the high-risk groups in all states. The minister proposed to step up the provision for the AIDS control programme to Rs.9.69 billion.

The minister also emphasised that more hospitals would provide treatment to prevent transmission of HIV/AIDS from mother to child.
