Urban Health and Nutrition Days will be organized at each Anganwadi center at least once a month. UHNDs will be organized by close coordination between Anganwadi worker, ASHA and ANM and provide services at the doorstep of the urban slum community. In case there are no Anganwadi centers, the ANM can find a common place in the community to conduct the UHND in coordination with the ASHA. The services will include the following:
  1. Early registration of pregnancies, antenatal care for pregnant women including IFA, TT, BP, counselling for nutrition during pregnancy, birth preparedness and ANC check-up
  2. Screening and referrals of high risk pregnancies
  3. Creating awareness about government schemes such as JSY and JSSK and promoting institutional deliveries
  4. Routine immunization for children including Vitamin A administration
  5. Treatment of minor ailments including diarrhoea and ARI among children
  6. Growth Monitoring for children under six years for early identification of malnourished children and counselling and referral as needed
  7. Counselling for IYCF, care during pregnancy, family planning
  8. Distribution of condoms and pills, counselling for IUCD and ligation to women who have completed their families
  9. IFA supplementation and deworming for adolescents
  10. Awareness about safe drinking water and sanitation practices, distribution of chlorine tablets as needed
Supplies for UHNDs will be procured and supplied by the UPCs where the ANM is based. The ANM can refer cases that need medical attention to the UPHC OPD or the special clinics being run there. The reports generate from the UHNDs will be included in the UPHC performance and all pregnant women registered will be entered in MCTS by HMIS/ MCTS Operator based on the information provided by the ANM after each UHND.
