The Sub Center is the platform for first contact health care service to the community. At present other than providing health services and monthly reporting, the sub center is not equipped with facility through which they can coordinate between the community and primary health care center. In many instances it has been observed that due to no connectivity between Sub Center and higher level of health facility do not receive information on time or they receive it after the outbreak. Hence, keeping in mind the above constraints Govt. of Assam is providing mobile set along with SIM card under networking and communication to ANMs so that she can report any suspected cases to the Primary Health Care Center to take immediate action before it results to outbreak. Along with this the ANM can also facilitate for the referral transport so that people can avail the facility as there are villages where public transportation facility is not available and in the process many people die.

This Mobile Phone connection is provided through BSNL. To facilitate this, BSNL has created one Virtual Private Network (VPN)/ Close User Group (CUG) for all mobile phones under the scheme Mobile Phone to Sub Center ANM under NRHM. All mobile phone users under this Close User Group (herein after referred to as “group”) will be able to call each other free of charge by dialing CUG No. From now onwards, all information from Health Department will be communicated to Sub Center through mobile phone.
