Bengaluru: The Karnataka Health and Family Welfare Department will take over the control of the Bengaluru civic agency’s Urban Primary Health Centres (UPHCs) and Community Health Centres (CHCs).

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

The order further mentioned that it was a significant initiative by Health Minister Dr. K. Sudhakar to revamp primary healthcare in Bengaluru.

“As per the order issued by the 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 the health and family welfare department,” stated the order.

The BBMP’s staff and equipment will be moved to the Health and Family Welfare Department. The initiative is aimed to enhance healthcare services throughout the State.

Sudhakar stated that the government’s public healthcare services should be uniform across all facilities, whether they are UPHCs or CHCs. “The decision to bring back health centres under the BBMP to the Health Department will aid in the integration of Centre and State health programmes and ensure effective implementation,” he added.

He noted that the decision will allow for better management of PHCs and administrative issues, resulting in greater service to citizens, particularly the urban poor.
