Abstract: The National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) was launched on 12th April newline2005. The objective was to provide equitable, affordable and quality health care newlineto the rural population, especially the vulnerable groups. It envisaged newlinedecentralization, community participation, organizational structural reforms in newlinehealth sector, inter-sectoral convergence, public private partnership in health newlinesector, mainstreaming Indian system of medicines under Ayurveda, Yoga, newlineUnani, Sidha and Homeopathy (AYUSH), induction of management and newlinefinancial personnel into health care management and delivery system. To begin newlinewith, in 2005 the special focus of NRHM was on 18 states which had weak newlinepublic health indicators and weak infrastructure. newlineOn May 1 2013, the government launched the National Urban Health newlineMission (NUHM) as a Sub-mission of an overarching National Health Mission newline(NHM), with National Rural Health mission (NRHM) being the other Submission of the National Health Mission. newlineHow far have the objectives of the NRHM been fulfilled? Have people been newlineable to access the programme and derive benefits? How far has it been able to newlineachieve its goals? A large number of studies by the government and by newlineindependent researchers have tried to evaluate the programme. This study is a newlinecontribution to this literature. It evaluates the programme in Gorakhpur, a newlinedistrict situated in a very economically backward region of the state of Uttar newlinePradesh. The district not only has very poor health indicators, but additionally, newlinethe district suffers from a high incidence of the killer Japanese Encephalitis newlinewhich has claimed the lives of several children year after year. It was hoped newlinethat with the launch of the NRHM in the district, there would be an newlineimprovement in the very poor child and maternal health indicators. This newlineresearch analyses the performance of the NRHM in two villages of Gorakhpur newlinedistrict of Uttar Pradesh. newline
