The report is based on a need-assessment survey conducted in connection with the BMCs plan to set up a municipal general hospital in one of its ward. The study was able to bring out the utility of public health care services in this area and to find out how the population copes with their health care needs when public health care services are not available in their locality. The study recommends that the BMC must go ahead and set up the proposed hospital at the specified site. Also, the number of dispensaries should be increased and to strengthen the existing primary health care system, health posts and dispensaries must be combined to provide integrated primary care.
