National Rural Health Mission

According to this news, the central govt announced the "National Rural Health Mission" in 18 states in the North and North-East. It has many interesting features (very decentralized; based on trained female health workers -- called Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHA) -- in each village; focus on comprehensive health (rather than specific diseases) etc. It looks like a very potent measure.

Also, the PM has said that the govt is committed "to raise health spending from 0.9 per cent of GDP at present to 2 per cent in the course of the next few years."
