Welfare state

  1. 1.  Rural Health Posts – They offer basic health checks and facilities including routine examinations, immunizations and minor injuries. They cover about 4,000 people.  Health Centers cover larger rural populations of approximately 7,000 people and offer a range of primary care services. They are able to perform minor surgeries and are normally staffed by teams of nurses as well as pediatricians, therapists and women’s doctors.  Urban Polyclinics provide services which are normally considered to be of general practice and include screening, treatment for chronic illnesses and on-going care. Depending on their size, urban polyclinics would also house approximately 3-4 specialists from fields such as cardio, oncology and obstetrics.  Special Focus Polyclinics – This is where pediatricians treat children up to the age of 19.
