The recently declared National Rural Health Mission has aroused significant interest, being both welcomed and closely scrutinized, since there is a long overdue and outstanding need to strengthen weak and dysfunctional public health systems in rural India. In this setting, Jan Swasthya Abhiyan (JSA) has been involved in analysing various aspects of the Mission. The concern has been that it should develop in a manner that actually strengthens public health systems in an integrated manner, and that it should empower communities to be involved in the planning and utilization of these systems in a Rights-based framework. In this article, one will draw upon and reflect on a few of the major concerns about NRHM that have emerged during the insightful discussions in JSA.
