Health and Wellness Centre HWC Devanandpur Raebareli

12 Health Services

PHC/UPHC- HWC Team

The Medical Officer at the PHC would be responsible for ensuring that CPHC services are delivered through all HWCs in her/his area and through the PHC itself. The number and qualifications of staff at the PHC would continue as defined in the Indian Public Health Standards (IPHS).

For PHCs to be strengthened to HWCs, support for training of PHC staff (Medical Officers, Staff Nurses, Pharmacist, and Lab Technicians), and provision of equipment for “Wellness Room”, the necessary IT infrastructure and the resources required for upgrading laboratory and diagnostic support to complement the expanded ranges of services would be provided. States could choose to modify staffing at HWC and PHC, based on local needs.

Key Principles

  1. Transform existing Sub Health Centres and Primary Health Centres to Health and Welllness Centers to ensure universal access to an expanded range of Comprehensive Primary Health Care services
  2. Ensure a people centered, holistic, equity sensitive response to people’s health needs through a process of population empanelment, regular home and community interactions and people’s participation.
  3. Enable delivery of high quality care that spans health risks and disease conditions through a commensurate expansion in availability of medicines & diagnostics, use of standard treatment and referral protocols and advanced technologies including IT systems.

  9. Facilitate the use of appropriate technology for improving access to health care advice and treatment initiation, enable reporting and recording, eventually progressing to electronic records for individuals and families.
  10. Institutionalize participation of civil society for social accountability.
  11. Partner with not for profit agencies and private sector for gap filling in a range of primary health care functions
  12. Facilitate systematic learning and sharing to enable feedback, and improvements and identify innovations for scale up
