The Government of India identifies the “block’ as the primary unit for implementation and management of life-saving RMNCH+A interventions. The “Guidance Note for Block Monitoring Visits” advises state and district health officers and their development partners to systematically assess the health infrastructure, human resources, and quality and coverage of RMNCH+A information and services, with the goal of identifying and addressing bottlenecks in the local health system. Block monitoring is also promoted as an opportunity to assess community outreach, home-based interventions and client satisfaction. Jharkhand State has been proactive in undertaking block monitoring visits. This success story describes the block monitoring process and initial results in Lohardaga, one of Jharkhand’s 11 high priority districts (HPD).
