National Urban Health Mission (NUHM)
 
 
Dr. MCR HRD Institute is also conducting orientation training programs for National Urban Health Mission for the various officials of MEPMA at the State, District and ULB level and also grass-root community health workers in the state of Telangana. The details of Programmes are given at Annexure-1.
 
The National Urban Health Mission (NUHM) as a sub-mission of National Health Mission (NHM) has been approved by the Cabinet on 1st May 2013.
 
NUHM envisages to meet health care needs of the urban population with the focus on urban poor, by making available to them essential primary health care services and reducing their out of pocket expenses for treatment. This will be achieved by strengthening the existing health care service delivery system, targeting the people living in slums and converging with various schemes relating to wider determinants of health like drinking water, sanitation, school education, etc. implemented by the Ministries of Urban Development, Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation, Human Resource Development and Women & Child Development.
 
NUHM would endeavour to achieve its goal through:-
i) Need based city specific urban health care system to meet the diverse health care needs of the urban poor and other vulnerable sections.
ii) Institutional mechanism and management systems to meet the health-related challenges of a rapidly growing urban population. iii) Partnership with community and local bodies for a more proactive involvement in planning, implementation, and monitoring of health activities.
iv) Availability of resources for providing essential primary health care to urban poor.
v) Partnerships with NGOs, for profit and not for profit health service providers and other stakeholders.
 
NUHM would cover all State capitals, district headquarters and cities/towns with a population of more than 50000. It would primarily focus on slum dwellers and other marginalized groups like rickshaw pullers, street vendors, railway and bus station coolies, homeless people, street children, construction site workers.
 
The centre-state funding pattern will be 75:25 for all the States except North-Eastern states including Sikkim and other special category states of Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, for whom the centre-state funding pattern will be 90:10.The Programme Implementation Plans (PIPs) sent by the states are apprised and approved by the Ministry.

Preparation Of City Street Vending Strategy For Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation (GWMC)
 
The preparation of City Street Vending Strategy for Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation is envisaged to be undertaken by Centre for Urban Development Studies (CUDS), Dr. MCR HRD Institute.
 
Street vendors constitute an important segment at bottom of the pyramid of informal economy in cities. Street vending provides a source of self-employment, and acts as measure of urban poverty alleviation. Street vending also has a prominent place in the urban supply chain, and provides inexpensive and convenient access to goods and services to all segments of the population including the poor. Street vending is therefore an integral part of the economic growth process in urban areas.
 
Low levels of education and skills, limited access to formal credit and micro enterprise support constrain street vendors’ ability to access emerging market opportunities. On account of being unorganised and self-employed, street vendors and their families often lack in any linkage to social security, welfare and assistance schemes and initiatives of the Government. This makes street vendors and their families vulnerable in difficult times, or when they may require assistance for unforeseen expenses.
 
The current scenario of Street Vendors in Telangana and Warangal Corporation is shown below where Warangal Corporation ranks 1st in Telangana State identified so far with 1989 street Vendors with 1182 males and 807 females respectively. This implies the significance of Street vendors in Warangal Corporation limits both as a self-employment and trade perspective. Telangana state has 28433 street Vendors identified so far.
