Instructing for rational deployment of Human Resource to overcome the work load, she said ASHAs should be given their due incentives to encourage them to work efficiently. She also called for sensitizing and involving PRIs and religious leaders to increase the acceptance level of immunization services. She also opined that Aadhaar seeding should be completed so that all benefit to the beneficiaries are paid through Direct Benefit Transfer.

Speaking on the occasion, Deputy Commissioner Karma Leki Tezu opined that it is a good initiative which can better facilitate the districts in improving the health indicators and also the participating districts can have first-hand experience of the activities in the host district.
