The Chief Secretary while reviewing the details of the State Annual Action Plan stressed on proper evaluation of the training components. Supporting the need on regular training to ASHA workers and ANMs, the CS gave directives to devise an ‘Evaluation Format’ to measure the productivity of training.
The formats should be devised in a manner where the feedbacks from both the trainers and trainees are obtained, he said.
Alarmed at the higher number of Cancer patients and cases in Arunachal Pradesh, the CS urged the Health Department to conduct Cancer Awareness Camps regularly. “We should invite Master Trainers from Government of India and Institutes like AIIMS,” he stated.
