RCH refers to Reproductive and Child Health Project. Under this Scheme, supplies of drugs, equipments and other consumables are made to Sub-Centres, Primary Health Centres (PHCs) and other First Referal Units (FRUs), as appropriate, for providing maternal and child health care.
The availability of drugs and other supplies from the programme is essential for maintaining the quality of the services. Apart from that, grants are given to NIHFW to impart training to trainers from the States to further train the different categories of health functionaries on various aspects of reproductive & child health activities. The programme related Reproductive & Child Health (RCH) activities are covered under the RCH Flexible Pool.
