According to the RTI we filed in 2017, during the year 2015-2016 there is a huge gap, a total of Rs. 5147260 between the budgeted amount for women’s sexual and reproductive health and what was actually expended, in Mumbai.
The biggest gaps can be seen in the budgets for training, FPIS (compensation in the event of death/failures/complication), operating costs of clinics and empanelment.
Similarly, there is a big gap, a total of Rs. 1254241 between the budgeted amount and expenditure amount in Kalyan Dombivali.
For any advocacy towards a gender sensitive sexual and reproductive health system, we need a strong budget to make sure practical changes takes place such as counselling centers for youth, training for healthworkers, awareness programs and so on.
