The Centre is in the process of finalising the National Urban Health Mission (NUHM) to provide better healthcare facilities to urban slum dwellers. The ambitious Rs.33,000-crore scheme is expected to bring within its purview domestic helps, vegetable vendors, vulnerable populations such as migrants, rag-pickers and street children. The Mission, aimed to “correct structural imbalances” in the public health system in urban areas, including that of infrastructure and human resource., will cover all cities with a population of more than one lakh.
