NUHM (National Urban Health Mission)

The Government of India has launched the National Urban Health Mission (NUHM) as a sub-mission under the National Health Mission (NHM), the National Health Mission (NHM) being the other sub-mission.

NUHM seeks to improve the health status of the urban population particularly slum dwellers and other vulnerable sections by facilitating their access to quality health care. NUHM would cover all state capitals, district headquarters and other cities/towns with a population of 50,000 and above (as per census 2011) in a phased manner. Cities and towns with population below 50,000 will be covered under NHM. These guidelines are used to enable the states and Union Territories to prepare the Programme Implementation Plans (PIP) for 2013-14 under the NUHM and are to be read in conjunction with the NUHM Framework for Implementation
