Quality Standards for Urban Primary Health Centre

Recognizing the seriousness of problem, national urban Health Mission (nuHM) was launched as a separate mission in years 2013 with objective of improving health status of the urban poor particularly slum dwellers and other marginalised sections. National Quality Assurance standards for District Hospitals, Community Health Centres (CHC) and Primary Health Centres (24x7) have been released and are being implemented across the country. Urban Primary Health Centres (uPHC)are different from conventional rural PHCs in term of size, functions, focus on ambulatory care, limited staff and infrastructure. U-PHC is also expected to deliver certain job-functions of subcentre through its outreach services. In view of these considerations, it is, therefore, appropriate that a separate list of standards are developed.
