The Mission seeks to provide effective health care to the rural populace throughout the country with special focus on the States and Union Territories (UTs), which have weak public health indicators and/or weak infrastructure.

4 Towards this end, the Indian Public Health Standards (IPHS) for Sub-Centres, Primary Health Centres (PHCs), Community Health Centres (CHCs), Sub- District and District Hospitals were published in January/February, 2007 and have been used as the reference point for public health care infrastructure planning and up-gradation in the States and UTs. IPHS are a set of uniform standards envisaged to improve the quality of health care delivery in the country. The IPHS documents have been revised keeping in view the changing protocols of the existing programmes and introduction of new programmes especially for Non-Communicable Diseases. Flexibility is allowed to suit the diverse needs of the states and regions.

5 Our country has a large number of public health institutions in rural areas from sub-centres at the most peripheral level to the District Hospitals at the District level. It is highly desirable that they should be fully functional and deliver quality care. I strongly believe that these IPHS Guidelines will act as the main driver for continuous improvement in quality and serve as the bench mark for assessing the functional status of health facilities. I call upon all States and UTs to adopt these IPHS Guidelines for strengthening the Public Health Care Institutions and put in their best efforts to achieve high quality of health care for our people across the country. New Delhi (Ghulam Nabi Azad).

6 FOREWORD. As envisaged under National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), the public health institutions in rural areas are to be upgraded from its present level to a level of a set of standards called . Indian Public Health Standards (IPHS) . The Indian Public Health Standards are the benchmarks for quality expected from various components of public health care organizations and may be used for assessing performance of health care delivery system. District hospital is a hospital at the secondary referral level responsible for a District of a defined geographical area containing a defined population. Its objective is to provide comprehensive secondary health care services to the people in the District at an acceptable level of quality and being responsive and sensitive to the needs of people and referring centres.

7 Every District is expected to have a District hospital . As setting standards is a dynamic process, need was felt to update the IPHS keeping in view the changing protocols of existing National Health Programmes, introduction of new programmes & initiatives especially Non-Communicable Diseases and the prevailing epidemiological situation in the country. Three documents for District Hospitals (101-200 bedded, 201-300 bedded and 301-500 bedded) have been merged, indicating standards for 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 bedded Hospitals in one document. The revision has been carried out by a task force comprising of various stakeholders under the Chairmanship of Director General of Health Services. Subject experts, NGOs, State representatives, health workers working in the health facilities have also been consulted at different stages of revision.

8 This document will help the State Governments and Panchayati Raj Institutions, to monitor effectively as to how many of the District Hospitals are conforming to IPHS and strive to upgrade the remaining to the desired level. I would like to acknowledge the efforts of the Directorate General of Health Services in preparing the Guidelines . It is hoped that this document will be useful to all the stakeholders. Comments and suggestions for further improvements are most welcome. ( ). PREFACE. Standards are a means of describing a level of quality that the health care organizations are expected to meet or aspire to achieve. For the first time under National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), an effort had been made to develop Indian Public Health Standards (IPHS) for a vast network of peripheral public health institutions in the country and the first set of standards was released in early 2007 to provide optimal specialized care to the community and achieve and maintain an acceptable standard of quality of care.

9 The IPHS for District Hospitals has been revised keeping in view the resources available with respect to functional requirements with minimum acceptable standards for such as building, manpower, instruments and equipment, drugs and other facilities etc. The task of revision was completed as a result of consultations held over many months with task force members, programme officers, Regional Directors of Health and Family Welfare, experts, health functionaries, representatives of Non-Government organizations, development partners and State/Union Territory Government representatives after reaching a consensus. The contribution of all of them is well appreciated. In this revised IPHS document, services that a District hospital is expected to provide have been grouped as Essential (Minimum Assured Services) and Desirable (which we should aspire to achieve).

10 Besides the basic specialty services, due importance has been given to Newborn Care, Psychiatric services, Physical Medicine and rehabilitation services, Accident and Trauma Services, Dialysis services, Anti-retroviral therapy and Patient Safety and Infection control norms. District hospital should be in a position not only to provide all basic specialty services but should aim to develop super-specialty services gradually. District hospital also needs to be ready for epidemic and disaster management all the times. In addition, it should provide facilities for skill based trainings for different levels of health care workers. I hope that this document will be of immense help to the States/Union Territories and other stakeholders in bringing up the health facilities to the level of Indian Public Health Standards.
