HSPH faculty members have been holding international courses on “”Decentralizing Health Systems”” in Boston for a number of years, and faculty have also been working in India on related issues. This project will support the development and provision of a course on decentralization to be offered during the week of July 30, 2007 in India. The purpose of this course will be to deepen understanding of political and managerial decentralization internationally, and in India especially related to NRHM, and to develop written draft plans for implementing decentralization in the participating states.
