2007 Resident Coordinator Annual Report
RC ANNUAL REPORT 2008

INTRODUCTORY LETTER

BRIEF DESCRIPTION

India sent a space vehicle to the moon, signed a nuclear deal, remained relatively unscathed by the global financial crisis and strengthened some of the main social sector schemes including the Rural Employment Guarantee. It also witnessed some important negative moments: slow down in economic growth, stagnant industrial and agricultural production, high inflation (double digit) for more than six months, stagnating HDI Rank, various incidents of internal civil strife, conflicts (sometimes violent) arising out of land acquisition for industrial purposes (resulting in the relocation of a major automobile plant, within the country), and several acts of terrorism culminating in the 26th November 2008 attacks in Mumbai. The India MDG Report 2007 of the Government of India is positive about the future even though data therein indicate a lag in a majority of the MDG-related national targets and indicators.

India, while integrated into the global economy, was not affected as much by the financial crisis as many other nations. It is now a Trillion Dollar economy with continuous upwards trend in tax collection, which currently is about 20% of GDP. 2008 also witnessed continued increase in social sector allocations by the Government of India. The National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme now covers the entire country, and allocations to health, education, water and sanitation have all gone up.

Inflation, which was in double digits, had come down at the end of the year and was about the same for the comparable period in 2007: about 6%. This, however, should be seen in the context of rise in food prices and a higher (than inflation) rate in the Consumer Price Index for rural labor.

The private sector in India took a beating with the national stock market indices showing a dramatic (nearly 60%) fall. There was also a downward spiral in the real estate market. The situation improved during the end of the year and some market stabilizing actions have been taken by the Government of India including infusion of public funds to stimulate infrastructure growth, especially in middle and low income housing.

On 28 Nov 08 the SMT declared Phase One, Precautionary, for India, with the exception of the districts of Jammu and India-administered Kashmir, where Phase Three continues to be in effect.

Summary on progress towards UNDAF outcomes


PROGRESS TOWARDS UNDAF OUTCOMES

While 2006 was the year of formulation of the India UNDAF 2008-2012 and 2007 was the year of its finalization and acceptance by the Planning Commission, 2008 was the first year of roll-out of the framework.

In India, the principal vehicles for operationalising the UNDAF are ten UNDAF Thematic Clusters. These Clusters work on the following UNDAF Themes: Poverty/ Livelihoods, Hunger/ Malnutrition, Education, Health, HIV/AIDS, Gender Based Violence, Governance, Vulnerability Reduction (with sub-groups on Disaster Risk Management & Climate Change), Water and Convergence.

Building on their work in 2007, the UNDAF Thematic Clusters focused their attention on refining and completing the UNDAF M&E Framework and 2008 Annual Work Plan. It was decided after discussions in the Cluster Heads meeting that a simplified version of the format used by Ex-Com Agencies will be used a template for work planning by the clusters. At the end of the year three Clusters also reviewed and reported on progress on their Annual Work Plans, while others were mid-way in their review process.

During the year, the UNCT piloted state level annual work plans in two of the UNDAF priority states (Madhya Pradesh and Bihar).

Apart from work planning, monitoring and evaluation, the Thematic Clusters also collaborated on more up stream activities. The highlights of these are:

• Advocacy and programme work were inter-twined this year in select areas. Joint advocacy was integrated into the Annual Work Plans of the UNDAF Thematic Clusters. Issues were discussed jointly and feedback from the interactions with elected representatives was shared. The UN system, facilitated by the RCO, identified Climate Change as a key issue on which we would develop joint messages. Programme and Communication Officers across UN Agencies collaborated to produce fact sheets from and in support of the programmes of the UN Agencies in India, within the framework of the National Action Plan on Climate Change. This work will be completed in 2009. • A joint event was held on World Day Against Child Labour. • Collaborative support provided to the regional initiative on “Local Service Delivery for MDGs”. • Joint work has commenced to bring out the “India Water Development Report” • Concerted support was provided to Government of India on the formulation of the National Employment Policy. • To avoid duplication of effort, the Clusters also invited and shared information with other development agencies and partners working on the same theme (Governance, Gender Based Violence and Climate Change), compiled a list of resource material available (in the area of GBV) and compiled and shared information on upcoming events within a theme (Governance Cluster) which led to greater across-Agency participation in events. • A Workshop on “Mainstreaming Disaster Risk Reduction into Development” was designed to provide Thematic Clusters with tools and practical approaches to integrate disaster risk reduction into the work under their respective themes. • 2008 was the International Year of Sanitation. RCO, in collaboration with UNICEF, worked on a number of presentations on sanitation and water quality at the Lok Sabha as well as in the LA of AP. • During the South Asian Conference on Sanitation (SACOSAN) in November 2008, WHO/UNICEF presented the latest findings of the Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation. As a result the GOI has requested UNICEF and WHO to provide support to the Department of Drinking Water supply with validation of the data for the preparation of the next JMP report in 2010. • Gender policy guidelines for the National Aids Control Programme were validated through a national consultation and put up on the website of NACO.

Due to delays in signing of Country Programme Action Plans of Executive Committee Agencies, delays in finalization of plans (mostly biennial) of a few other UN organizations in 2008, and consequent delays in implementation, the annual review of India UNDAF was not done for 2008. However, as mentioned above about 3 Thematic Clusters have reviewed their Annual Work Plans for 2008.

Summary on progress in UN Reform


HIGHLIGHTS ON PROGRESS IN UN REFORM

INDIA UNDAF 2008-2012

1. The UN in India has aligned as a team to plan, develop and deliver on national goals as articulated in the 11th Five-year Plan (2007-2012) of the Government of India to facilitate ‘inclusive growth’. Accordingly, the UNDAF India 2008-2012 focuses on MDG-related outcomes especially for the heretofore excluded groups, especially women and girls. The UN system in India actively collaborated with the Planning Commission, Government of India and seven state governments to align its framework to the governments’ development priorities. The state level UNDAF presentations were completed this year and we have benefited from the information shared by government officials on their priorities and feedback on UN’s proposed five year framework.

2. UN entities in India supported the government mostly in policy advocacy and monitoring of almost all the main national schemes targeted at achieving national goals. One of the attempts this year was to localize MDGs as India is a federal country and a number of MDG related strategies have to be concurrent; that is, they have to be addressed by the national, provincial and local governments. To this effect, the UN system in India has also been linking its programmes and communications for impact at the provincial level. There is a perceived lack of demand from below in India for services in the areas of health, education, employment, water and sanitation and hence a multi-stakeholder consultation on Local Monitoring of MDGs was held this year. Efforts are on to prepare a resource kit on local tracking of MDG-related schemes that can be utilized by a cross-section of society. UNIFEM supported Ministry of Women and Child Development (MWCD) in orienting line ministries in southern & eastern & north eastern regions on CEDAW implementation & Gender Responsive Budgeting (two workshops). UNIFEM supported Lawyers Collective and National Commission for Women to review implementation of Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act (PWDVA) 2005 (UN Trust Fund on VAW) through the compilation and launch of the Second Monitoring and Evaluation Report.

3. The areas of strengthening capacity of national, provincial and local governments have been in governance, identification of bottlenecks in implementation, and monitoring for results. We are supporting capacity building of the government at the national level especially in monitoring. The support provided by the UN in the development of the latest version of DevInfo (released this year) was appreciated by the government. We also supported the national government in the area of health through SWAP (Sector-Wide Approach to Programmes). In addition the UN assisted the country in its attempts to eliminate communicable diseases like Polio, TB, and HIV/AIDS through joint surveillance and support to national and sub-national campaigns. We continue to support the national government in training their staff to maintain and update a data base on externally-aided projects. To increase cooperation with regional and national actors on emergency preparedness and response the first UNHCR–SAARC Emergency and Disaster Management Workshop was held with participation of senior government officers from all SAARC countries, military officers, UN staff and NGOs.

4. Joint Programmes in 2008 The UN Country Team initiated and implemented several joint programmes to strengthen the government’s efforts to achieve its development goals.

JOINT UNITED NATIONS SUPPORT ON HIV/AIDS

The Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS had successfully helped the Government of India to launch NACP-III in 2007 and the year 2008 was one of consolidation of the Joint UN support to the National AIDS Control Organization (NACO). The enthusiasm and ownership of the national government for the Joint UN support was higher in 2008. The NACO endorsed the plan for 2008 and appreciated the support UNAIDS provided in facilitating multi stakeholder meetings and development on the One UN Plan .

The UN agencies supported by the UNAIDS Secretariat continued to support NACO and facilitate partnerships with civil society and development partners. The Joint Team provided support to the Government of India and NGOs in formulating proposals for the Global Fund on AIDS, TB and Malaria (GFATM). The Country Coordinating Mechanism was strengthened and India submitted a proposal for Round 8 of GFATM.

The Joint UN Initiative in partnership with NACO was successfully launched for the Northeastern region, to enhance technical support for the Northeast states. The initiative received funding from Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID).

The year saw UNAIDS India releasing a Toolkit for Parliamentarians (prepared in consultation with the Parliamentarians’ Forum on HIV/AIDS and a select group of parliamentarians). A film called DISHA (Direction) depicting some positive and affirmative responses from political leaders on the HIV/AIDS related issues was also launched.

TSUNAMI

The joint UN team successfully completed the work on Tsunami recovery and organized an end-term evaluation and exit. The state government (Tamil Nadu) appreciated the joint work of the UN and has continued to carry forward the reforms that had begun with UN technical assistance. GOVERNMENT OF INDIA-UN JOINT PROGRAMME ON CONVERGENCE: INDIA UNDAF OUTCOME 3

The goal of this joint programme is to put select backward districts in 7 UNDAF States on track to achieve MDGs through greater and more effective utilization of government resources with technical support coming from the joint work of participating UN entities. The UN decided to work with the Government of India, specifically by adding value to the Planning Commission’s Scheme for Strengthening National, State and District Planning.

The joint programme is based on a partnership amongst the Planning Commission (Government. of India), 7 State Governments (Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh), 3 UN Funds & Programmes (UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF) at the core and need-based technical assistance from ILO, FAO, UNESCO, WFP, WHO, UN-Habitat, UNAIDS and UNIFEM. The Joint Programme Document on Convergence to Meet MDGs at the District Level was signed by the Planning Commission, UNRC and participating UN Agencies in December 2008.

The work will be funded and delivered in the parallel mode with the pillars being projects of UNDP, UNICEF and UNFPA. Discussions are in different levels of progress with state governments on ways of working and the annual work plans for 2009. Facilitation for coordination will be provided by the UNRCO.

JOINT UN SUPPORT TO CENSUS-2011

Combined technical assistance by select UN Agencies for India’s Census Office, to ensure gender focus and timely provision of Census 2011 data so as to track progress on key MDG indicators at national, state, district and local level was initiated and an agreement concluded this year. This work is led by UNFPA and facilitated by the UNRCO.

Regular UN dialogue with Census Commissioner since April 2008 has culminated in a US$ 2.5 million package of technical assistance from participating UN entities (UNFPA, UNICEF, UNDP, and UNIFEM). For Census 2011, UNFPA is supporting City GIS Mapping and a Gender Cell for the Census. UNICEF and UNIFEM are supporting training material for Census enumerators and publicity and outreach products to ensure better quality of answers from respondent households, especially on gender- related queries in the Questionnaire. UNDP is supporting quick tabulation and dissemination of Census data.

The Project Agreement with GOI was approved in a joint event by the Census Commissioner, Government of India and Heads of participating UN entities. UNICEF will provide support in developing CensusInfo based on DevInfo platform for wider dissemination of Census 2011 data.

JOINT ADVOCACY

In 2008, the partnership with the National Parliament continued to be vibrant and seven interactions with Members of Parliament on issues ranging from HIV/AIDS, education, water quality, sanitation and hygiene, employment, adolescent health and sport & development.

Three interactions, five meetings and two field visits were organized with state-level elected representatives. An important aspect of the work of the UN was work with the Standing Committees of the State Legislative Assemblies. Key amongst these was interactions with the Committees for the Welfare of Women and Children and Welfare of Scheduled Castes and Tribes. Recommendations made during the discussions were incorporated in the Report of the Standing Committees to the State Legislative Assemblies. Issues discussed included malnutrition, water and sanitation, age at marriage, child health, education, maternal mortality, sex selection and adolescent health. Participating Agencies included UNICEF, FAO, UNODC, UNFPA, UNIFEM and ILO. The UNRCO facilitated the setting up of a UN Publications Resource Centre in the Andhra Pradesh Assembly.

With the support of UNICEF, UNDP, UNFPA and UNMC, and civil society organizations the UNRC Office organized the first set of workshops on MDGs for vernacular journalists from five UNDAF states. MDG fact sheets on India (in Hindi) were shared. Senior journalists, senior bureaucrats, agency focal points on thematic issues, and civil society partners contributed to the successful conduct of the training. With the active engagement from interested UN Agencies, the RCO is considering a proposal to conduct these interactive MDGs training at the district level to cover a larger number of journalists and localize the MDG context further.

SOLUTION EXCHANGE – KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT PLATFORM OF THE UN COUNTRY TEAM

The year 2008 saw several changes, some achievements, and several challenges for Solution Exchange. The Development Phase formally came to a close at the end of March 08. The UNCT approved changes in the structure of the Co-ordination Unit for the regular phase of Solution Exchange,

Solution Exchange now has 12 Communities of Practice comprising 25,000 development practitioners, with membership growing by over 90 per week. It has issued nearly 800 Consolidated Replies. A bi-lingual community – Karnataka – was launched and another – Climate Change – was approved by the UNCT.

2008 witnessed an increased use of Solution Exchange services by government officials, colleagues from UN Agencies and practitioners from across the spectrum in all Communities of Practice. Departments of the Government of India have actively sought and utilized the platform for refining and enriching their policies. A significant innovation, with pro bono support from private sector, was the creation of a mobile phone and web based communication facility (www.sms4help.org) for use in post disaster communications. This was used during the Bihar floods for tracing missing persons, and co-ordinating relief supplies. HACT:

Long Term Agreements with Audit firms for micro assessments were established. Orientation on HACT was given to 10 line Ministries of UNDP. UNICEF is in the process of training its staff in state offices; sensitization of the partners will take place after these offices have been oriented. Micro-Assessments were started by UNDP. UNICEF led the HACT micro-assessment for the Census 2011 project on behalf of the UN participating entities. A core team of program and finance staff was formed and trained by UNFPA on FACE. Most Partners are already using the FACE form for expenditure reporting and an Excel database for the Implementing Partners of the 3 Agencies is hosted on the HACT webpage on UN Intranet. An assurance plan will be developed based on Micro-Assessment reports. As it is the country which has to become HACT compliant, all ExCom agencies need to move toward achieving the five conditions which will make India a HACT compliant country. . OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT TEAM (OMT)

A new list of UN Examining Physicians was finalized and is being submitted to HQ. Premises: a suitable MOSS compliant building was identified for relocation of five UN agencies (that had non MOSS compliant premises) in a common premise by the end of 2008 and agencies are working with their respective HQs to secure authorization and funding. UNFPA & UNDP are moving into common premises with UNICEF in Bihar; UNFPA, UNDP and UN Habitat are joining the state office in Madhya Pradesh currently being occupied by WFP and UNICEF. In Orissa, UNDP and UNFPA are now operating from a joint office. A common Lease Agreement template for private lease was made available to all UN entities in India. Others: The goal of harmonized Consultants’ rates was not completed due to the fact that different agencies have different capacities and requirements. 11 UN agencies have entered into 3 Long Term Agreements for procurement of goods and services. The joint travel contract review (14 Agencies) will be completed by February 2009. New guest houses have been identified and a consolidated list with revised rates has been circulated to all UN agencies. List of new negotiated rates with hotels in India has been prepared and made available to all UN agencies..

UN DISASTER MANAGEMENT TEAM (UNDMT)

The UNDMT Handbook was prepared in 2008. It mapped each agency’s commitment towards the UNDMT. In April 2008, the team organized a joint workshop on Pandemic Preparedness beyond Health with the National Disaster Management Authority, the Pandemic Influenza Contingency (Geneva) and the Organisation for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (Asia-Pacific) in New Delhi, funded by WHO India. The two-day workshop added pandemic preparedness to the disaster preparedness agenda for the UNDMT. UNDMT members were also trained in M&E skills and were the core group that carried forward the work of the DRM group of the UNDAF Vulnerability Reduction Cluster. The UNDMT worked on developing key messages for advocacy on disaster risk management and climate change. The UNDMT Associate along with trained colleagues from UNDP BCPR delivered two day training on Mainstreaming Disaster Risk Reduction into Development to 40 programme officers working on the UNDAF thematic clusters. Representatives from UN agencies in Bhutan, Nepal and Sri Lanka also participated in the training.

The UNDMT prepared over 30 Situation Reports in 2008 that were circulated to over 200 partners directly, posted on the UNDMT website and the UN Solution Exchange DRM community. In response to the floods in north Bihar, the UNDMT prepared consolidated Situation Reports including response from all UN agencies, SPHERE and IFRC. These were circulated in a timely manner. During this critical response period, the UNDMT held regular coordination meetings in New Delhi, chaired by the UN Resident Coordinator, providing a forum for information exchange and coordination among representatives from NGOs, bilateral agencies and international agencies. Members of the UNDMT were part of multi-sectoral assessment teams that undertook field visits in the flood-affected areas in Bihar. Trained in accessing the UN Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), the UNDMT was able to raise emergency funds for immediate response in relief camps during the first 3 months of the crisis (September – November 2008).

SAFETY AND SECURITY

This year there has been a marked increase in high profile terrorist attacks in India, most significantly in Delhi and Mumbai. Terrorists/militants have staged numerous attacks on people and property throughout the country. The most prominent groups are violent extremist separatists operating in Jammu and Kashmir, Maoists in the “Red Belt” in East-Central India, and ethno-linguistic nationalists in India’s North-Eastern states and other militant groups.

The risk level to the UN System in India ranges from low to high. However, according to the Security Risk Assessment (SRA) for India and while it is impossible to generalize about an area the size and complexity of this country, considering the prevailing threats and risks to the UN, its staff and assets, and given GoI as well as private protection, and the physical security measures currently in place, the general risk level of the UN System in India is assessed to be low, except in the higher risk areas where the risk is assessed to be medium. Some of the main achievements this years within the area of safety and security are:

• Revised Security Risk Assessment for India finalized. • Security Plan revised and ready for endorsement by the SMT. • Finalized the Revised Avian and Human Influenza Contingency Plan. • A formal Security Cell established with Security Officers of the UN system and UN Agency Security Focal Points. • Security Management Team meetings and agenda have been streamlined and regular minutes shared with SMT members. • India moved to Phase One (Jammu and Kashmir remains at Phase Three) on 29th November, 2008. • ISECT as well as in-country security clearance implemented. • Enhanced contact with the Area Security Coordinators (15). • State Level Security Risk Assessments finalized for Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh as well as Tamil Nadu & Kerala.

Key aspects of the proposed 2009 workplan

1. HEALTH- For the Mid-Term Review of the RCH-II programme, UNICEF led the thematic group on child health consisting of other development partners, Child Health Division, GOI. The Integrated Management of Neo-natal and Childhood Illnesses (IMNCI), the central child health strategy under the Reproductive and Child Health-II programme, was scaled up to about 192 districts, and more than 65,000 frontline workers were trained this year. More than 60 per cent of all newborns in the implementing districts were provided home based care through visits by trained workers, and there is preliminary evidence that the use rates of oral rehydration salts, early initiation of breastfeeding and immunisation coverage have increased significantly in implementing districts. UN continued to support immunisation strengthening activities across the country, both at policy and implementation level with intensive support in seven focus states. Provisional results available from the District Level Health Survey 2008 show significant improvements in coverage of fully immunised children in seven focus states as compared to levels in 2005-2006. At the meeting of the National Technical Advisory Group of Immunisation, India endorsed the policy of measles 2nd opportunity and introduction of Hib vaccine into the Universal Immunisation Programme to accelerate child survival intervention in the country. UNICEF and WHO had both advocated for this policy. Hepatitis B vaccine was expanded into the Universal Immunisation Programme in 10 states. Through GAVI funding, UNICEF procured and supplied Hepatitis B vaccine for the expansion plan. Together with WHO, UNICEF is assisting GOI in preparing operational guideline for Hepatitis B Vaccination in India. UNICEF successfully advocated for a policy shift for the introduction of Vaccine Vial Monitor on all vaccines and for the introduction of freeze tags for shipment of freeze-sensitive vaccines. This year, Maternal Perinatal Death Inquiry and Response (MAPEDIR) was initiated in Maharashtra, Assam and Haryana as part of NRHM, and scaled up from three to 11 districts in Rajasthan. 2. NUTRITION- Technical support contributed to the development and finalisation of the national “ICDS Universalisation with Quality” plan that includes a) expanding from 1 to 1.4 million anganwadi centres ; b) reaching nearly 100 million children with a focus on under-threes and excluded community groups; c) enhancing norms for nutritional support and early learning; and d) increasing the 11th Five-Year Plan budget by four times, decentralisation and cost-sharing. UNICEF played a critical role in supporting the introduction of the new WHO Child Growth Standards and Mother-Child Protection Card Package in ICDS and NRHM. UNICEF strengthened its partnership with MI/USAID/CIDA for large-scale VAS+DW coverage and successfully leveraged NRHM and ICDS resources for improved VAS+DW programming. UNICEF successfully advocated for the inclusion of supervised anaemia control programs for adolescent girls in ICDS and NRHM state plans. UNICEF assessed the effectiveness of current facility-based programmes for the management of severe acute malnutrition (SAM) in children, resulting in the formulation and adoption of recommendations for aligning facility-based care with internationally-agreed upon guidelines. UNICEF supported the introduction of ready to use therapeutic foods (RUTF) for the first time in India in regular (Madhya Pradesh) and emergency (Bihar) programmes. (UNICEF) 3. WATER & SANITATION--Supported the Departments of Elementary Education and the Rajiv Gandhi National Drinking Water Mission in reviewing existing designs of school toilets. More child-friendly and inclusive guidelines were launched by the Minister of Rural Development. The Nirmal Gram Puruskar assessment found that of the 162 of the 810 villages awarded the NGP in 2006 and 2007, only six villages remained fully open defecation free. Based on these findings, the Nirmal Gram Puruskar scheme came under closer scrutiny; the RGNDWM reviewed their verification process following a consultation with the Secretaries of six states included in the study. The original 13,000 plus intended recipients in 2008, decreased to just over 11,000. The findings of the hygiene education survey and the Joint Monitoring Programme were used to enhance the dialogue with government partners, parliamentarians, legislative assemblies and other key influencers, to address critical issues and to influence programme polities and implementation strategies of the Total Sanitation Campaign and the National Rural Drinking Water Quality Monitoring and Surveillance Programme. In collaboration with the UN Resident Coordinator’s office, CE facilitated lectures on sanitation and water quality in the Lok Saba in New Delhi and the Planning Commission. EDUCATION--In 2008, more than 25 million children in approximately 200,000 schools were learning in school systems that had adopted all or major elements of child-friendly methods and tools advocated by UNICEF. UNICEF has provided technical support to the development and dissemination of teacher performance standards, which more than 15 states have now taken on board. Currently, reforms in teacher assessment and management affect an estimated one out of the five million primary teachers. Another key area of work has been the UNICEF-UNESCO partnership with an important national institution, the National Centre for Education Research and Training, to develop a new approach and tools for learning assessments. The “Sports for Development” partnership with the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the MHRD, the British Council and UK Sports has facilitated innovative pedagogical approaches for more child-friendly forms of learning. Pilot projects targeting 250,000 children have been initiated in Delhi, AP, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal and Assam

4. CHILD PROTECTION--UNICEF supported the NCPCR in conducting an assessment on Juvenile Justice institutions for children in need of care and protection (i.e. Children’s Homes) and children in conflict with the law (i.e. Observation Homes) in ten states. This resulted in policy recommendations by NCPCR to MWCD, including a demand for greater accountability for state-level Juvenile Justice institutions. MWCD developed an initial draft Management Information System on Juvenile Justice implementation aimed at ensuring better reporting from their departments at a state level. UNICEF provided technical advice to state Departments of Women and Child Development on formulation/amendments of Juvenile Justice Rules based on national Model Rules. (UNICEF) 5. CHILDREN & AIDS--In partnership with MWCD, NACO, Family Health International, India HIV/AIDS Alliance and civil society partners, UNICEF supported the development of the operational guidelines on programming for the protection and care for children affected by AIDS. The Link workers program strategy in the National AIDS Control Program Phase III aims to reach out to the high risk groups and vulnerable populations including most at risk and especially vulnerable youth in the rural parts of the 189 district high risk and high priority districts. UNICEF has rolled out the programme in 25 districts. In 2008 the “Red Ribbon Express” train completed its historic year-long journey around the country. The objective was to encourage public dialogue about HIV and AIDS, thereby reducing stigma and discrimination. The train covered 27,000 kilometres and stopped at 180 stations. A total of 6.23 million people were reached by the train, buses and folk performers. 110,964 people were given counselling and health education in the counselling coach in the train. 68,244 people were sensitised to HIV issues in the auditorium coach. 8,725 were given syndromic treatment for Sexually Transmitted Infections. UNICEF was actively involved in the planning of all the activities of the Red Ribbon Express both at the national and state levels, as well as training of various cadres of people involved with it. 6.

i)GOI supported by WHO surveillance and UNICEF communication planning to accelerate progress in eradicating polio in endemic states. Type 1 polio virus interrupted in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar in 2008. Type 3 polio virus interrupted nation-wide in 2009.

ii)National efforts supported to leverage environmental finance to address climate change, biodiversity, land degradation and chemical management issues. Number of UNDP-supported initiatives on biodiversity conservation, Clean Technologies, and Climate Change

India closed 2008 with 551 polio cases, a significant decrease from the 874 cases of 2007. Bihar reported only 3 P1 cases in 2008, down from 46 in 2007. This is a particularly impressive achievement given the devastating floods that hit the state in August. Vaccinators and UNICEF community mobilisers worked hard to ensure polio was among the top priorities in the relief effort, and the Government of Bihar, together with UNICEF and WHO partners immediately organized a multi-pronged vaccination strategy that successfully reached 19,811,392 children under 5 with OPV – approximately 99% of all target children – within 6 weeks. Immunisation was organised in over 300 Government-run camps, together with the Sub-National Immunization Day for the districts that were not affected by floods. In the flood-affected districts, a special mop-up round was organised, and a transit strategy was implemented in the critical cities where people were migrating through roads and railways. Although 30 million (that is, 75 per cent of) children under 5 in UP have been reached with over seven doses of OPV in 2008 (compared to 68 per cent in 2007), continued transmission of the virus in the state is still a barrier to national eradication. Reaching migrant workers continues to be one of the most significant challenges in obtaining full vaccination coverage, both in U.P and Bihar. There is a significant reduction in the burden of cases amongst the Muslim community, thanks largely to UNICEF’s Underserved communication strategy. Among all 2008 polio cases in UP, only 37 per cent were from the Muslim community, compared to 70 per cent in 2007. (UNICEF) (1) Maintained the high quality AFP Surveillance in India by meeting global targets of performance indicators (NPAFP-8.4 and Stool rate- 85 per cent) and conducted National AFP surveillance reviews undertaken in the high risk states in India. (2) Maintained the Global timeliness criteria of reporting 80% of primary isolation result within 14 days by all 7 polio labs supported by WHO. All the polio labs have adopted new algorithm for faster processing and ITD. (3) Provided both the technical and monitoring support in 2 NIDs, 6 SNIDs and several mop-ups activities implemented in 2008 to sustain the high quality of pulse polio immunization activities in India. (4) Provided the technical, financial and logistics support in 2 meetings of India Expert Advisory Group (IEAG) held in 2008 and ensured a continued advocacy with GOI and State Governments for implementation of IEAGs recommendations and to sustain quality of SIAs and AFP surveillance activities in India.(WHO)
