Welcome to UHRC Library
Urban Health Resource Centre (UHRC) is a non-profit Indian organization which aims to address health issues of the
urban poor through a consultative and knowledge-sharing approach in partnership with government and civil society.
UHRC evolved as an independent organization from the USAID-funded Environmenal Health Project (EHP) in India.
UHRC aims to develop, promote and test urban slum approaches to neonatal survival, diarrhea prevention and other
child health priorities through behavior change and community actions;
provide technical assistance to slum-based NGOs/CBOs and to Municipal Corporations to improve health-related
service delivery and community linkages. An important facet of UHRC's work is also to provide assistance to the central
and state governments on developing policies and programs that are sensitive to the emerging health needs of the
urban poor. Complementing program development and technical assistance activities, is the generation of information
that describe the health conditions of the urban poor, and making available information to a variety of stakeholders
to influence policy making and increase allocation of resources to improve the health of the urban poor.
