Director's Message



The Regional Resource Centre for the NE States (RRC-NE) established during November, 2005 by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India with financial assistance from European Commission to support the 8 NE states including Sikkim for technical assistance in health sector. It has mandate to work with the States to identify core areas to be focused in the short, medium and long run and plan for providing the missing technical and managerial capacity.

RRC-NE has its in-house expert in field of Public Health, Finance and Audit, Procurement and Logistics, Civil and Architecture and Consultants for Community Mobilization and HMIS located at HQ office at Guwahati. To coordinate and facilitate with all NE states, RRC has its State Facilitator located at Mission Directorate Office of NRHM in respective states.

The core strategies of RRC-NE is to facilitate planning, implementation and monitoring of all health related programmes and activities in NE states particularly the NRHM. Efforts are being made during last few years to provide technical and managerial assistance as required for smooth implementation of NRHM activities in the states through our expert from RRC and State Facilitators located in the states.

I would like to request the all concerned for suggestions for better coordination with the states for streamlining the NRHM in NE states and to help the region in improving the overall health scenario in coming days.

We affirm our commitment for better health care delivery system including system reform in the NE states through this initiative.
