Pune: The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) is all set to launch the National Urban Health Mission (NUHM) on Wednesday. Under the scheme, which will see investments of over Rs 6 crore, infrastructure and manpower of 53 of the State-run hospitals and Primary Health Centres (PHCs) will be strengthened.

According to Assistant Medical Officer of Health (PMC) Dr Sanjeev Wavare, the biggest advantage of NUHM is that it is an outreach programme specially designed to cater to the underprivileged persons including slum dwellers, migrant and construction workers among others.

“Each hospital has been allotted a budget of Rs 10 lakh, that includes improving infrastructure and other medical facilities. Additionally, being completely decentralised in nature, the vulnerable community from every area can be given special focus,” Dr Wavare said.

“A total of Rs 1.10 crore has been specially allotted for newer requirements. This includes 18 posts of Medical Officers, 200 posts of Auxiliary Nurse Midwife (ANM), 60 posts for General Nurse Midwife (GNM), 15 posts for pharmacists and 30 posts for lab technicians,” he added.

There will screen for non-communicable diseases including diabetes, anaemia and hypertension that will be undertaken, he added.
