The programme will be launched in the three selected states after the signing of MoUs
With the vision of initiating the transformation in the education and health sectors, NITI Aayog has launched SATH programme providing ‘Sustainable Action for Transforming Human Capital’ with the state governments.
This programme aims to identify and build three future ‘role model’ states for health systems. NITI Aayog will work in close collaboration with their state machinery to design a robust roadmap of intervention, develop a programme governance structure, set up monitoring and tracking mechanisms, hand-hold state institutions through the execution stage and provide support on a range of institutional measures to achieve the end objectives.
The programme will be implemented by NITI along with McKinsey & Company and IPE Global consortium, who were selected through a competitive bidding process.
To select the three model states, NITI defined a three-stage process – expression of interest, presentations by the states and assessment of commitment to health sector reforms. Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Chandigarh, Goa, Gujarat, Haryana, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Punjab, Telangana and Uttar Pradesh presented their project proposal to a committee headed by member of NITI Aayog, Bibek Debroy and comprising of CEO, Amitabh Kant as well as a representative from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
The programme will be launched in the three selected states after the signing of MoUs.
