SATH program launched by NITI Aayog

NITI Aayog has launched SATH, a program providing ‘Sustainable Action for Transforming Human capital’ with the State Governments.

The vision of the program is to initiate transformation in the education and health sectors.

The program addresses the need expressed by many states for technical support from NITI.

What you need to know about SATH program?

SATH aims to identify and build three future ‘role model’ states for health systems.

NITI will work in close collaboration with their state machinery to design a robust roadmap of intervention, develop a program 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.

Selection of states:

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.

States will be selected on the basis of evaluations and objective assessment of criteria affecting the potential for impact and likelihood of success.

Metrics such as MMR, IMR, incidence of malaria and others have been considered for determining potential impact while density of doctors and nurses, compliance to IPHS norms are some of the metrics used to determine likelihood of success.
