Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The development of National Urban Health Mission (NUHM) and Framework for Implementation by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare involved extensive consultations across all levels of Government and civil society. The NUHM Technical Resource Group (TRG) further guided on key issues of reaching vulnerable sections of the society, main strategies and institutional design of NUHM, and organization of urban health service delivery and governance based on series of consultations with experts and a range of vulnerable urban poor groups and field visits to 30 cities. The ADB team also conducted stakeholder consultations and detailed field assessment of NUHM implementation in West Bengal, Madya Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu, which gave important insights into NUHM implementation challenges and capacity building requirements.
During Project Implementation For stakeholder participation, the NUHM emphasizes community participation and processes, reaching of vulnerable groups, and capacity building of stakeholders (urban local bodies, health workers, private providers, community structures, and functionaries of other related departments) in managerial, technical, and public health competencies.
