Communitisation was launched in the Department after the bill was passed by the State Assembly with the enactment of �Nagaland Communitisation of Public Institutions and Services Act, 2002�. In the beginning only the rural based health centres were communitised, but in due course of time, almost all the functioning health units have been communitised, except the district hospitals.
- b) Objectives/Aims for Communitization:
- Make community aware that health is the responsibility of both the Government and the community.
- Enable the community to own-up health centres so as to plan and execute their own health needs with the staff for both preventive and curative.
- Create awareness for the community to contribute in the form of support – morally and to donate cash and kind to meet the gaps when there are shortages.
- Encourage/popularize the locally available indigenous herbs/ practices as an alternative health care.
