Institute of health management, Pune
The urban health and development programme aims to improve the health status in urban slums through the establishment of a decentralised health delivery system and development of strong local structures. The project is operational in 27 slums of the Mundhwa-Ghorpadi area, serving a population of 30,000.
"Arogya Vikas Samitis" (Health and Development Committees) have been established in all the project slums. An equal sharing of responsibilities is the working principle for these committees. This implies equal emphasis on IHMP priorities as well as needs and issues identified by the community. The community contributes some financial inputs to promote partnership and ownership. The implementation of the project has introduced various systems of assessing community needs, participatory planning, monitoring and accountability of health workers to the community they serve
