EXPECTED LEVEL OF ACHIEVEMENT(ELA)
The Family Welfare programme is being implemented all over India on the basis of Target Free Approach since April 1996. Keeping in mind the shortfalls of Target Free Approach, the Government of India adopts Community Needs Assessment Approach (CNAA) From September 1997. The demand of the Community for quality services would be expected to become the driving force behind the CNAA programme making it a people's programme. The objective of the CNAA is to provide family welfare services to the beneficiaries on need based, client centered, demand driven, high quality integrated services. It has been observed constantly that some of the family welfare programmes are not up to the mark and the overall performance (achievement) of the programme is decreasing year after year. With the result the health indicators calculated on the basis of District Data is not matching with the survey figures conducted by leading National Organizations. The target fixed for various family welfare programmes based on CNAA survey by districts is not comparable with the demographic calculations, which needs to be, as per the guidelines of Government of India. Keeping the above inference in mind an attempt has been made, to work out the targets for various family welfare programmes based on Demographic characters.
The Mathematical Model developed in the Demography section for the purpose of calculating the targets (which will be henceforth called as Expected level of Achievement ELA ) for various family welfare programmes is explained in subsequent paras.
