The North Eastern Council (NEC) will set up an institution for paramedical education in the public-private partnership (PPP) mode in Nagaland.
This was decided at a review meeting of the NEC chaired by Bijoy Krishna Handique, Minister for Development of North-East Region (DoNER) here recently.
According to an official press release, the institution will be set up in the Regional Referral Hospital campus in Nagaland, where adequate land is available. The hospital was funded by the Ministry of DoNER through its Non-Lapsable Central Pool of Resources (NLCPR) Fund.
A memorandum of understanding (MoU) in this regard will be formally signed on September 15 between the NEC and the Government, the release added.
The meeting also discussed the issue of a study on the health infrastructure gaps in the North-Eastern region. The NEC has approached the public sector Hospital Services Consultancy Corporation Limited to do a gap analysis of three aspects, including Manpower, Referral Services and Health Infrastructure, in the region.
The release said the study would not cover the primary health sector but restrict itself to secondary and referral services.
It was also decided in the meeting that NEC will conduct the study on the operationalisation of assets in the health sector in Nagaland and Tripura. The upgradation of the nursing college in the Regional College of Nursing, Imphal was also discussed.
It was also decided in the meeting that the NEC would sponsor students of the Downtown Hospital which has started its health education facilities recently.
The release said the meeting also reviewed the status of studies/action plans in various sectors of Vision 2020 for the North Eastern Region.
It said the action plans for the Inland Waterways and Telecommunications sectors were ready for implementation. The Action Plans for other sectors like Railways, Tourism, Civil Aviation, Border Trade and Power Transmission are also in the pipeline.
The NEC has commissioned a Master Plan on Circuit Based Tourism in NER by Tata Consultancy Services.

A study on Border Trade by Research and Information System for Developing Countries has also been commissioned by NEC.
