Primary Health Care Management in India
At present, the PHCs all over the country are mostly being managed by the Medical Professionals without any formal education and training in Management. They are ignorant of basic Management principles & techniques, Behavioural issues and other related matters. But they are forced to organize these institutions, other than the field they are actually trained for. This results in underutilization of the resources available to the PHCs.
This research work is a humble attempt to analyze the Management functions in Primary Health Centres, and to suggest ways for their better functioning. In the process, the work tries to probe into the growth and working of PHCs, investigates the Managerial Problems, existing procedures and Patient Satisfaction survey, about the performance of PHCs, with aim to suggest measures for strengthening the prevailing system. This publication may be of special significance for faculty, researchers who are pursuing research studies in this area and policy makers.
