National Health Mission Red Tape: Is The Money Mismanaged?

In 2015-16 and 2016-17, on average, only about 55% of the National Health Mission funds were utilised by states. In Bihar and Maharashtra, for instance, this underutilisation has been partly due to significant delays in release of funds from the state treasuries to the implementing agencies.

Mita Choudhury and Ranjan Kumar Mohanty examine the utilisation of these funds in 29 Indian states in 2015–16 and 2016–17 in their article "Utilisation, Fund Flows and Public Financial Management under the National Health Mission."
