Abstract

Introduction: This paper is an attempt to get an in depth knowledge of the public health status of the state and the challenges being faced by the state. Adequate public health Infrastructure and Human Resources are the two main components that helps in ensuring proper delivery of health services to the society. This paper will focus mainly on these two components at the community level i.e at Sub centre (SC), Primary Health Centres (PHCs) and Community Health Centres (CHCs). This is an effort to enable and help medical practitioners, healthcare providers and other stakeholders to identify the need and to ensure optimum utilization of available resources to improve health status of the community and the state.
Materials and Methods: Desk Review of the available literature and analysis of the secondary data available in public domain was carried out.
Results: In spite of showing progress in various health indicators like IMR, Institutional deliveries, ANC etc. there is lot yet to be achieved. In terms of presence of SC, PHC & CHC there are enough number of facilities present in the state but the condition has been appalling in terms of quality of health care services & availability of specialist and well trained manpower.
 Conclusion: Due to identified bottlenecks in the paper the healthcare delivery system of state is not of high quality which takes a toll on performance of the state. A roadmap needs to be developed and adhered to in order to achieve the desirable and sustainable health system with adequate HRH and quality infrastructure in the state.

Keywords: Health systems, Health Infrastructure, Human resources for health, North east public health, Rural healthcare, Community health accessibility.
