Rank this case study
 
Due to the inadequacy of the primary health delivery system in Agra, the UHRC was assigned to develop Urban Health Plan focusing on urban poor in the region in partnership with the government officials, NGOs and the community.

The Urban Health Resource Center (UHRC) initiated an urban health program in partnership with the Government of Uttar Pradesh. It undertook two approaches: The first one involved partnerships with three NGOs in delivering reproductive health services and family planning services such as Family Planning Association of India (FPAI), Naujhil Integrated Rural Project for health and Development (NIRPHAD) and Shri Niroti Lal Buddhist Sansthan (SNBS). The second approach included mobilizing the community and volunteers to enhance demand and utilization of health care through Community Link Volunteers and Mahila Arogya Samitis; and serve the community they belonged. The Government, NGO, Community members and UHRC representatives were the key agents in improving the health care, sanitation and overall empowerment of the urban poor in the region.
