New Delhi: April 20, 2010
The Delhi Cabinet on Monday gave its nod for introduction of Public Health Standards for Primary Urban Health Centres (PUHC) in the Capital. As per the plan, for every 50,000 population, one such health care unit would be identified, strengthened and upgraded to a PUHC. After the meeting, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit informed the media that the public health standards for PUHCs have been approved to improve availability and access to quality health care for all citizens and in particular the poor and vulnerable sections of the population. While one unit would be upgraded for every 50,000 population, the figure would actually vary between 35,000 and 75,000 depending on the density of population in a given area.
