 The DFID-supported Madhya Pradesh Health Sector Reforms Programme (MPHSRP) extends technical assistance to four departments of the Government of Madhya Pradesh (GoMP) through the FHI 360-led Technical and Management Support Agency (TAST).

MPTAST is supporting replication of the Participatory Learning and Action (PLA) approach to improve demand for HNWASH services among communities in eight districts of Madhya Pradesh. MPTAST has partnered with three NGOs for interventions in three districts covering nine blocks. Whereas in the remaining five districts, SRLM is directly supporting the intervention in one block each, totalling to five blocks.
