One of the major components of urban health care approach has been the community based honorary health worker scheme which has been operationlised in West Bengal since 1986 through different health programmes like CUDP, IPP-VIII, UHIP in KMA ULBs and IPP-VIII (Extn.), RCH Sub-Project, Asansol and HHW Scheme in Non-KMA ULBs. With the objective of strengthening the existing community based primary health care services in the ULBs DFID has extended support under KUSP not only to 40 KMA ULBs but also to 22 Non-KMA ULBs. To get an overview of the existing health care delivery system a study had been conducted by CMU through Interim Support Consultants. The intended outcomes of the study were to strengthen the community based HHW programme to improve access to and the quality of health services for the urban poor; and to develop a frame work for mainstreaming HIV / AIDS as part of the larger health care system in the ULBs.

A Health Steering Committee was constituted during November, 2004 by CMU to finalize the design of the health component of KUSP programme. The Study Report of ISC including key findings and recommendation was shared with Health Steering Committee and subsequently with Health Officer & Asstt. Health Officer of the ULBs.

Attempt were made to cover the remaining 63 ULBs in Non-KMA area which was not covered by any of the Primary Health Care Projects is to be brought under Primary Health Care System. Accordingly, a project namely “Community Based Primary Health Care Services” has been taken up by the H&FW Department in co-ordination with the Municipal Affairs Department.
