Health & Wellness Center, Rajasthan

Since Financial Year 2015-16, Rajasthan had initiated a project in two districts, Baran and Churu under Universal Health Coverage. Under this Project, OPD and Diagnostic services are being provided through weekly OPD in the evening by AYUSH Medical Officers along with Lab Technicians from the same PHC. The basic purpose was to increase the services available at sub centres. It was implemented in 150 sub centres of two districts and up to March, 2017, more than 27,511 patients were benefitted.
This similar project has been up-scaled by Government of India in the form of “Health and Wellness Centres”. The Government of India has mandated that by 2022, all sub centres must be converted into Health and Wellness Centres. They have also evolved the conceptof “Community Health Officer”. Nurse / AYUSH doctors will be trained for six months at prescribed centres, recognized by IGNOU in order to work as Community Health Officers. These Community Health Officers will then be posted at sub centres and then regular services will be provided by them to the nearby population.
