Agra, Health of Urban Poor

Project Description

To support the ambitious National Urban Health Mission (NUHM) with technical assistance, USAID initiated Health of Urban Poor (HUP) project. Agra was one of the selected cities under the project. HUP was aimed at addressing the reproductive, maternal and child health needs of urban slum women and children in 22 slums of the city. The goal was to create a replicable urban health model that comprehensively manages both preventive and curative health issues among the poor. Community systems for nudging prenatal and child health check ups were initiated using health committees. HUP was used to extend CURE’s water and sanitation interventions in the new settlements. New toilets in homes of pregnant and nursing women were built using the CAP technical and financial model. A City Health Plan was also developed under the project as a framework for future health interventions on a citywide and comprehensive manner.
