Uttar Pradesh has been working towards strengthening its health
systems through various initiatives since the beginning of the National
Health Mission (NHM). The State has been making continuous
efforts the health objectives set out for it and a multi-pronged
strategy has been adopted.
Capacity building for professional development of existing doctors
in collaboration with leading institutions of the country has been an
integral part for strengthening human resources.
Infrastructure has been considerably strengthened with up gradation
of district hospitals, CHCs. The State has made efforts to construct
buildings in a phased manner for all the Sub Centers in the state.
There has been great impact of NHM on important process health
indicators like number of institutional deliveries, complete
immunization of children below one year of age and colostrums feeding
within one hour of birth.
The State is also trying to provide comprehensive health services to
the community residing in remote areas which are difficult to reach
through mobile medical units (MMU) and outreach camps. To provide
referral transport facility to pregnant mothers, sick children,
accidental cases and other emergency cases, the State has made a
provision of Emergency Response Ambulances.
A fundamental requirement of any quality program is well developed

indicators, and to provide information critical to program planning.
The State is making special efforts in implementation of Mother Child
