Manipur is a state in North East India that also shares the international border with Myanmar. Although a small state, it has lots of diversity, such as hills and valleys, different ethnic groups, and population density. The state offers unique challenges to supply healthcare services, especially in sparsely populated, remote, far-flung areas, resulting in supply gaps that have worsened due to the Covid related health crisis. The 10BedICU project is trying to meet the Covid Challenges in the state by setting up ICU units in every District Hospital through world-class equipments complemented by a pandemic management technology platform. The technology will register all hospitals, assets, staff and patients, and other stakeholders to help the govt. monitor, facilitate and manage the Covid pandemic effectively. The technology will also help in rolling out Tele ICU across districts. JNIMs, the state tertiary hospital, will act as the teleconsultation hub. It will share expertise and provide handholding support to the doctors in District Hospitals to support for delivery of critical care services in Rural Manipur.
Project Management Unit
A Project Management Unit, PMU, is set up at the state level. The PMU is responsible for planning, administering, and supervising the implementation of the Project. The PMU consist of senior officials from the Government and the 10BedICU partners.
