BBMP-run UPHCs, CHCs to come under control of health dept in Karnataka


PTI, May 7, 2022, 8:52 AM IST

Bengaluru: The Urban Primary Health Centres (UPHCs) and Community Health Centres (CHCs) currently under the Bengaluru civic agency’s control will be taken over by the Karnataka Health and Family Welfare Department.

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), which had financial and administrative control over these health centres, will now be moved to the supervision of the health department, a statement from the health department said.

It further said it was Karnataka Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar’s significant move to revamp primary healthcare in Bengaluru.

“As per the order issued by state government on Friday, a total of 51 health centres will be taken over by the health department. The 35 UPHCs listed under National Urban Health Mission, 14 unlisted UPHCs and two CHCs will now come under the purview of health and family welfare department,” the statement said.

The staff recruited by BBMP and equipment procured by it will also be transferred to the Health and Family Welfare Department. The move is aimed at streamlining healthcare services across the state.

Sudhakar, in the statement, said the public healthcare services provided by government should be similar across all facilities be in UPHCs or CHCs.

“Whether it is urban or rural area, people should get quality healthcare services across the state. The move to bring back health centres under BBMP to the purview of Health Department will help us to integrate the health programmes of Centre and state government and ensure effective implementation,” Sudhakar said.

The decision will also enable better management of PHCs and streamlining of administrative issues leading to improved service to citizens, especially the urban poor, he added.
