Mobile Medical Units (MMU)

Mobile Medical Units have been provided in all 385 blocks under NRHM and are functioning since February 2009 under the control of the PHC Patient Welfare Societies. Each Mobile Medical Unit covers at least 25 to 30 remote villages which are being visited on fixed days every month. Services rendered by Mobile Medical Units especially routine immunization/dropout immunization are being strictly monitored. The other routine services (Ante Natal Care, Post Natal Care, Family Welfare Services, Lab Services, Adolescent Care, Referral Services and Counseling Services) rendered by the MMU team are linked with the Village Health and Nutrition (VHN) day if the MMU visits the village on the same day.
