ITANAGAR:Reiterating that the health sector would always remain priority agenda of his government, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki has directed the department to come up with a vibrant human resource policy for rational deployment and transfer and posting of staff for approval.     

Chairing the pre-budget discussion-cum-consultation of the department here on Thursday, Tuki pointed out that posting doctors, nurses and other para medical staff in various hospitals and health centres had been posing a great challenge which should be addressed through an effective policy.              

Some of the important observations of the CM included supportive supervision and monitoring of health facilities to be strengthened, a press release from the CMO said here today.           

Stressing on “Health for all” to be the buzz word of the department, the chief minister directed all state health authorities to visit the districts for monitoring.   

 Health Minister Kalikho Pul apprised the CM of major issues of the department like transfer and posting policy and shortfall of critical manpower, the release said.       Earlier, Health and Family Welfare Secretary Indra Mallo through a Power Point presentation highlighted the status of major schemes of the department and NRHM.       

She briefed the achievements and major outcomes of the department, saying that the state had improved in many health indicators and achieved major targets set by the state and the Centre.          

 Chairing another meeting yesterday, Tuki directed the Social Justice & Empowerment and Tribal Affairs Department to obtain need-based approval of schemes from the state government to avoid resource wastage and mis-utilization of funds released by various union ministries.
