The Ministry of Health & Family Welfare tracks progress of its Annual Development Program by an online database system called “ADP monitoring system”. All the line directors of the Health, Population & Nutrition Sector Development Program 2011-16 and all the other project directors of different development projects under the ministry update the database with financial and physical data pertaining to their ongoing progress. Each month there held a monitoring meeting chaired by the Senior Secretary of the ministry, where facts and figures are drawn from this database online and on large projection screens.
The respective line directors and project directors update the data from their respective offices. Tables, charts and summary reports including IMED (implementation, monitoring & evaluation department) are automatically generated. This database is a great tool for project managers, agency chiefs or the ministry to review progress of ADP anytime and from anywhere through Internet.
