Health Program Guidelines

This section deals with various Guidelines formulated by National/State Governments or WHO in accordance with specific public health tribulations to ascertain their prevention and control. These will be helpful for the learners as various National Health Programmes in detail (implementation, monitoring and evaluation) are the in built components of our subject- the Community Medicine.

Not only for exam purpose and UG/PG teaching but also practical knowledge is obligatory as far as our field is concerned as we have to utilize this knowledge recurrently as monitoring and evaluation of each specific National Health Programme is done by Government with the help of public health experts……….we, the people from Community Medicine faculty are catering this job. Some of the contemporaries are exclusively involved in such responsibilities.
