SPIP- State Programme Implementation Plan.
The Health Minister, Shri J P Nadda stated this in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha here today.

*****
Social Awareness Campaign for Organ Donation 
The Government accords very high priority for increasing donation of cadaver organs to bridge the gap between the demands for and supply of organs and to save the lives of a large numbers of persons suffering from end stage organ failure. With this in view, the importance of organ donation has been highlighted by the Hon’ble Prime Minister in ‘Mann Ki Baat’ Programme in October and November 2015. As a result, a very large number of calls/queries are being received by NOTTO from all over the country. Average number of visitors visiting NOTTO website everyday has increased from 665 before Mann Ki Baat on 25-10-2015 to 1407, and similarly, average number of calls being received has increased from 22 to 61 per day.

Other steps taken to make organ donation easier include provision of updated information to general public on NOTTO website, a 24x7 call centre with toll free helpline number (1800114770), launch of National Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplant Registry. The Government has also decided to award best performing State, best NGO, best transplant coordinator and best hospitals/institutes, etc. working in the area of organ donation. Hospitals have been advised to display boards outside the Intensive Care Units and at strategic locations in hospitals reminding that the law requires the doctor on duty/transplant coordinator/counsellor to make inquiry and request for organ donation from the family members of brain stem dead persons. Financial assistance is also being provided under the National Organ Transplant Programme for hiring transplant coordinators in Hospitals and Trauma Centres.

The Health Minister, Shri J P Nadda stated this in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha here today. 
*****
National Urban Health Mission 
The National Urban Health Mission (NUHM) has been approved as a sub-mission under an overarching National Health Mission (NHM) on 1st May 2013 for providing equitable and quality primary health care services to the urban population with special focus on slum and vulnerable population.

The NUHM covers all cities and towns with more than 50,000 population as well as district headquarters and state headquarters having population between 30,000- 50,000.

It envisages for setting up of Urban Primary Health Centre (U-PHC) for population more than 50,000 and Urban Community Health Centre (U-CHC) in cities with more than five lakh population and targeted interventions for slum areas such as Accredited Social Health Activists and Mahila Arogya Samiti. It also provides for augmentation of Human Resources in terms of medical, para-medical and program management staff.

The Health Minister, Shri J P Nadda stated this in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha here today. 
*****
Norms to Test and Launch Drugs 
The process of approval of new drugs and conduct of clinical trials has been rationalized by the Government with a view to ensure a careful assessment of the risk versus benefit to the patients, innovation vis-à-vis existing therapeutic options and unmet medical needs in the country. These criteria have been made an integral part of the approval process. Besides, a module for online submission of clinical trial applications has been operationalized. Further, the pool of Subject Experts has been increased manifold and time-lines fixed for all activities. At the same time, adequate measures have been put in place to ensure the safety and welfare of patients /clinical trial subjects.

The Health Minister, Shri J P Nadda stated this in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha here today.
