The Sub Divisional and District Hospitals are government hospitals with more than 30 beds. Mobile Medical Units have been envisaged under National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) to provide preventive, promotive and curative health care in inaccessible areas and difficult terrains, which are underserved or unserved areas under usual circumstances. Functional Mobile Medical Units not only look after the curative aspects but also render Behaviour Change Communication (BCC) activities to promote healthy under the NRHM.
Sub-Centre (SC) is the most peripheral and first contact point between the primary health care system and the community. One Sub Centre is to cover a population of 3000 in Hilly / Tribal / Difficult areas and 5000 in Plain areas. Each Sub-Centre is required to be manned by at least one Auxiliary Nurse Midwife (ANM) / Female Health Worker and one Male Health Worker. Under National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), there is a provision for one additional second ANM on contract basis.
