Programme Objective: Moving towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is a key goal of 12th Plan and the GoI has already charted a path that depends largely  on  provision  of  affordable, quantity health care through  the  public  health  system.  Provision  of  Comprehensive  Primary Health  Care  is an integral and pivotal part of UHC and there is a felt need of generating evidences to evolve innovative solution for  strengthening  the  Primary  Healthcare.  For  this purpose,  the  GoI  has planned to  upgrade of selected Sub Centers into Health  & Wellness Centers across the country under new National Health Policy 2017 which has been approved by Central Cabinet under the chairmanship of Hon’ble Prime Minister on 15 March 2017.

The objective of the programme is to provide Comprehensive Primary Health Care through strengthening  of  existing  Sub  Centers  and  sector  level  Primary  Health  Centers  in  a  block  to Health & Wellness Centers linked to a block PHC. The Sub Centre level Health & Wellness Centers  (HWC) would have one additional MLHP-cum-CHO as additional human resource with HR on the lines of what is defined in the IPHS standards.

Key Activities: Strengthen the Sub Center as a HWC to deliver a package of  Comprehensive Primary Health Care services listed below. The first point of referral for such HWC would be  a 24/7 Block PHC.  The  Block  PHC  and  the  HWCs  should  provide  the  package  of Comprehensive Primary Health Care for the population and have effective linkages to the CHC and District Hospital for specially consultation of following 12 services:

  • Comprehensive  maternal  health  care  services  to  be  provided  in  those  sites equipped to serve as ‘deliver points’.
  • Comprehensive neonatal and infant health care services.
  • Comprehensive childhood and adolescent health care services.
  • Comprehensive reproductive health care services.
  • Comprehensive management of communicable diseases.
  • Comprehensive management of Non-Communicable diseases
  • Basic ophthalmic care services
  • Basic ENT care services.
  • Screening and basic management of mental health ailments.
  • Basic dental health care.
  • Basic geriatric health care services.
  • Emergency Medical Care.

 The services  listed  from  (i)  through  (xii)  are  already  being  provided.  Some  aspects  of these services would need to be strengthened. Care for Communicable Diseases is being undertaken under vertical disease control programme, although this will need coordination as to the services being provided through the sub center and how it links to higher level facilities. NCD is one area which accounts for a major burden of disease and health care cost. The other services can be phased in gradually, prioritizing those which cause higher morbidity.

A  team  of  CHOs,  one  ANM,  one  male  multipurpose  worker  and ASHAs   belonging   to   the   villages of the Sub Center areawill be for HWC. Develop a plan for the organization of services and corresponding to this a skill development plan to enable the team to deliver the services as listed above.  IT  platform  to be put  in  place  that  enables  the  team  to  record  the  services  provided,  to provide continuity  of   care   across   time   and  across   levels,   to   perform   population   based analytics and to enable monitoring. The actual burden of recording and register work for the expanded basket of services should be measurably less than for the current package of services by ensuring that register work is not an added on layer but integrated into the work process itself. The Go I will facilitate the process.

Family Folders and an individual Health Card will be prepared and it will be provided through ASHA, who also informs the family of what services the HWC offers and who the members of the primary care team. The Health & Wellness Center team will have a record of the  family  health cards. A digital format would be implemented depending on the state of readiness so as to facilitate referrals and enable a continuum of care.

For conditions that require long term treatment,  drug  supplies  will  be  available  at  the HWCs so that patients do not have travel far their homes for prescription refills, and the Primary care team can also monitor compliance and provide follow ups and counseling. Develop a system for referral and patient transport for  secondary care hospitalization using the golden hour thumb rule.

A strategy  for counseling  and interpersonal communication  at community and facility levels to be developed that  emphasizes  action  on   social   determines   as   well   as   addresses modifiable risk factors. This is a role that will need to engage VHSNC, ANM and ASHA.

The Team at SC level HWC will undertake a baseline survey to assess morbidity burden and out of pocket expenses.

Guidance Note for States on “Certificate Course in Community Health”

  • A. About the Course: Trained and competent human resources are essential for an effective health care delivery system. There is a pressing need to strengthen health sub centers to provide Comprehensive Primary Care including for NCDs. Global evidence suggests that suitably trained (3-4 years duration) service providers can provide considerable primary care. As one of the measures to increase the availability of such appropriately qualified  HR,  especially  in rural and remote areas, on 13th November 2013, the Cabinet approved the introduction of a 3 & 1/2 year Bachelor of Science in Community Health (BSc CH) Course in India. However, the uptake for this course has been slow and if some Universities were to start the course, the first batch of professionals will be available for recruitment only by the end of the fourth year.

On the other hand, qualified Ayurveda Doctors are available in the system, who could  be trained  in public health &  primary  care  through  suitably  designed  ‘Bridge  Programs  in Community  Health’. Such qualified human resource may function as Mid Level Health  Care Providers  and  called ‘Community Health Officers (CHOs)’ and posted at health Sub Centres; which could be developed as ‘Health & Wellness Centres’. The  BSc  (CH)  Curriculum  is  the  benchmark  for  developing  this Certificate   Course   in Community Health Services and these MLHPs will be primarily deployed at Health & Wellness Centers (or Sub Centers). They would possess the necessary knowledge and competencies to deliver comprehensive primary care services and implement public health programmes.

Course Outline: The Certificate Programmes will be rolled out by IGNOU. Theory classes and hands-on Practicum training will be organized at Program Study Centers and Health Centers (District Hospitals, CHCs, PHCs, Sub Centers, etc.) identified and accredited by IGNOU. In addition to this there would be community visits by students for field-based assignments and research projects.

Eligibility:

  • Bridge Program in Community Health: BAMS
  • Medium of Instruction: English/ Hindi for teaching as well as assessments
  • Course Duration: Six months
  • Academic Session: 1st January and 1st July of each year
  • Course Objectives: Based on the gaps identified through curriculum mapping  between BSc (CH) the program would broadly cover the following:

Introduction to National Health Programs & Health Systems and adherence to national protocols of treatment and care, development of leadership and management skills for effective functioning of H&WCs. Public Health Competencies such as understanding the history & evolution of public health in India, analysis of health profile of district, state & country, methods to improve health seeking behavior, health promotion, nutritional assessment, promotion, education and rehabilitation,  use  of basic epidemiological tools, morbidity and mortality profiling of community/district, reproductive and child health, understanding concepts of primary and comprehensive health care, health planning and management.

Teaching on primary  care  of  common  conditions  will  lay  emphasis  on  covering  the  gaps identified in the course mapping as well as the package of 12 services that has been identified for preventive, promotive and basic curative service delivery for comprehensive primary care – these  include  the areas of maternal and child  health, family  planning, communicable diseases, screening  for non- communicable diseases,  management  of  acute simple  illnesses,  basic  management  of  eye,  ENT, dental, screening for mental health and provision of basic palliative care and care for the elderly, with a mechanism for prompt and effective referral where appropriate.

The course would cover all essential competencies required by a MLHP to deliver care at the Health and Wellness Centers (HWCs). The course would lay extra emphasis on key areas such as Drug Pharmacology, Diagnostic skills including Physical examination, and use of drugs. Basic skills of leadership and management will also be covered in the course.

Evaluation: Internal evaluation will be conducted by  IGNOU  periodically  through  written  or practical assignments, depending on the subject being assessed.

  • Final Examination  will be conducted by IGNOU at the end of the course through written and practical examination.
  • Marks distribution to be decided as per IGNOU regulations.

Certification:  A  certificate  will  be  provided  by   IGNOU   on   successful   completion   of   the internship and submission of project work.

Job Opportunity: On successful completion, the candidate will be posted at the Health & Wellness Centers as Community Health Officers (CHOs) to lead a primary care provider team consisting of female health workers (ANMs), male health worker (MPW), ASHAs, etc.

Job Responsibilities: The trained CHO would broadly be expected to carry out public health functions, ambulatory care, management  and leadership   at  the  Health  &  Wellness   Centers (H&WCs). They would be expected to:
