Regional Resource Centre

Regional Resource Centre: The Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India in 1997 launched a comprehensive reproductive child health programme in partnership with the NGO sector to reach the underserved and inaccessible populations of the country. VHAI and other national level NGOs were designated as Regional Resource Centres (RRCs). VHAI started formally functioning as a Regional Resource Centre (RRC) since January 2002.

VHAI-RRC looks after the four states of Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, J&K and Delhi with 51 MNGOs and 212 FNGOs under its ambit. The emphasis is on a decentralized approach with most functions, except technical support being relegated to the state governments.

Since inception, VHAI-RRC has become a focal point for NGOs to address needs for capacity building, networking and strengthening partnerships with state governments and district authorities. It acts as an enabling mechanism for sharing of experiences by documenting and disseminating successful approaches, learnings and innovations in RCH service delivery in its newsletter, Abhilasha and community mobilization processes. It also conducts periodic evaluation and assessment by conducting field visits to assess the effectiveness of technical support and training inputs.

Presently the RRC is going through a transition period. New roles are being envisaged in the forthcoming 12th five year plan.
