CHSJ in collaboration with Population Leadership Program, University of Washington and UNFPA, developed a course on Rapid Assessment of Health Programmes and trained a group of young researchers from organisations across the country to conduct rapid assessments of different aspects of NRHM implementation. The three phase training programme was organized in 2008 with the idea of involving civil society organizations to provide feedback to the state and strengthen public programming to improve both its delivery and utilization. This book is a product of this training and is a collection of research reports generated through the Rapid Assessment process. The 12 papers included in this collection depict a range of micro-relaities from different regions of the country and were shared with government, technical agencies, donors and other health networks and organizations at the grassroots level as well as included in the mid-term review process of the Eleventh Five Year Plan.
