( The ARSH-UDAAN program is proposed to be expanded in some blocks , 1 in 3 small districts ( Rudraprayag ,Bageshwar and Champawat) and 2 blocks in remaining 6 districts namely Uttarkashi, Chamoli, Tehri, Pauri garwal, Pitthoragarh and almora. There are 95 blocks in the state and 27 are already covered through the block level FNGOs and 68 are remaining in 9 districts, where no such program is undertaken. Hence, in addition to the existing 27 blocks, additional 15 blocks will be covered during next FY 2012-13 while the remaining will be propose in the next PIP for the FY 2013-14 to cover all the 95 blocks of the state. The names of the intervention blocks will be selected in consultation with the respective CMOs and DPM in the new districts on the GoI criteria for highest population density, highest number of senior secondary level schools etc. The status of remaining 9 districts is given in the following table and the data is from provisional Census 2011 findings and is for complete district:

In accordance to the feedback from Govt. of India officials, during various interactions with the state level stakeholders, an spending of huge budgets on FNGO , state has decided to strengthen the existing ASHA Support System through DARCs for better community mobilization by providing extra manpower to them to implement this program at the block level and to propose incentives for motivators and service providers to increase the ownership among Govt. officials and to institutionalise the ARSH-UDAAN program. Hence, the state proposes a revised plan to implement the program with the help of DARCs. The FNGOs working in 27 existing blocks of four Districts will continue. The DARCs will enter into block wise MoU with the Chief Medical Officer and will run the program in each block as a separate entity so that the block wise performances can be assessed by the state. The FNGOs who will be willing to continue with revised model and reduced budget will continue in existing blocks else the same will be assigned to the DARC of that district.

The major changes in the implementation strategy are as follows:

50 priority intervention villages will be selected in each block;
VHSC of intervention villages would be taken into confidence for all ARSH activities, setting up of AFC and distribution of scholarships to PGE’s.
Instead of 4 FTs and a BC of FNGOs, now the male and female ARSH mobilizers and an Accountant cum MIS Assistant will be provided to the FNGOs in old 27 blocks and to the DARCs in 34 additional blocks ;
ASHA, ASHA Facilitators, VHSC, AWW and DARC Staff will play an active role in selection of PGEs and management of AFCs and other village level activities in each block. Priority would be given to SAKHIS and SAHELI’s of SABLA programme whereever applicable.
A ARSH District Counsellor &Coordinator (DCC) would be stationed at each DH AFCC and would work under the DARC, S/he would directly oversee UHCs- ARSH trainings and work to strengthen the covergence between all AFCC’s and ICTC centres.The block level staff assigned to FNGOs and DARC will report to the District Counsellor &Coordinator (DCC) of DARC and Regional Coordinator of SNA;
Staff Nurse wherever possible would be trained as counsellors to meet out the large number required for AFHS.
The block level staff provided to the FNGOs and DARC for ARSH-UDAAN program will utilize AFCC area as their office in the block PHC/CHC for better convergence between AFCC staff and ARSH program staff;
The ASHA/ANM/AWW/PGE and AFCC staff will be incentivised to improve the access to the AFHS;
State Nodal Agency will recruit 2 additional Regional Coordinators for ARSH each for 10 to 11 blocks with 70% travelling time;
FNGO’s in the blocks who will express their inconvenience with the GoI approved revised model of ARSH implementation, will be replaced by the DARC model for additional blocks in remaining 9 districts;
The Block coordinator (DARC) and District Counsellor &Coordinator (DCC), ARSH will jointly operate the separate bank account for ARSH program in the new model;
The ARSH project staff will actively support in each and every activity of the Menstrual Hygiene program at the block level;
The master trainers for MHP would be trained by ARSH- SNA at SARC.
ICTC Counsellors would be given additional work at block AFCC to strengthe the counselling services of ARSH.
The Roles of UKHFWS, SNA and Block Units will remain same in order to accomplish the UDAAN activities;

In this way the implementation model for ARSH UDAAN be obliged for more accountability towards increasing the AFHS with the support of ASHA Support System and incentives for the motivator and service provider by cutting down the overheads associated with existing FNGO approach .The state envisages the greater success to this program with the revised model.
