The project oversaw the establishment of 192 Urban Health Centres (UHCs) in 74 Municipalities of the state. While the UHCs were established by the State, their day-to-day management was contracted out to local service providers (NGOs, for profit and not for profit entities).
The UHCs are located within the slum to ensure easy access for the target population. Each UHC is assigned a defined slum area, clearly demarcated in terms of the boundaries, which covers an average of 15-20,000 individuals. Every facility is run by a Medical Officer with the help of 1 Community Organiser, 2 Auxilarry Nurse and Midwife (ANM) and 3 support staff.
The UHCs in each district are overseen by a District Medical and Health Officer (DH&HO) with decision control of a District Level Committee comprising of: District Collector, Municipal Chairman, DM&HO, Municipal Commissioner, and the Medical/Health Officer of Municipality. Advisory support is provided by an Advisory Committee consisting of a Municipal Councillor, Project Co-ordinator of the concerned NGO, Medical Officer of the UHC, Community Organiser of the UHC, Community Representatives, Representative from First Refferal Unit (FRU), Representative of private hospitals, Municipal Health Officer, and the District Extension Media Officer.
