The absence of adequate funds under National Rural Health Mission has taken toll on various projects like CCSP training and School Health Programme. The worst part is that female AYUSH doctors and data operators, working at primary and community health centres have not been paid their salaries for the last five months due to funds crunch. The training of ASHAs under the banner of the CCSP programme has completely stopped since May month. Earlier, it was scheduled to impart training to as many as 200 batches of ASHAs with an aim to check the infant mortality rate in the district. Due the due to lack of funds, local problems and absence of guidances from state health authorities, the training of only 53 batches could be completed. The district health authorities had earlier set a target to train 3,984 ASHAs under the programme and 53 batches were already imparted training. The training was launched to improve health services status in rural pockets of the district under NRHM.
