In Rajasthan, Community Health Officer (CHO) is a key healthcare professional responsible for providing basic primary healthcare services to rural communities.
The CHO program was launched in 2019 as part of the National Health Mission, with the aim of improving the availability and accessibility of quality healthcare services in remote and underserved areas. The program trains graduates in nursing, ayurveda, homeopathy, and Unani to become CHOs through a six-month bridge course.
Once trained, CHOs are placed in Sub Health Centres (SHCs) where they work with Auxiliary Nurse Midwives (ANMs) and Anganwadi Workers (AWWs) to provide essential healthcare services to the community. They provide basic medical care, diagnose and treat common illnesses, provide preventive healthcare services, and refer patients to higher facilities if required.
The CHO program has been successful in improving access to healthcare services in rural areas and addressing the shortage of healthcare professionals in the state. The program has also contributed to improving maternal and child health indicators and reducing the burden of communicable diseases.
Overall, the CHO program has played a vital role in improving the health and well-being of the rural communities in Rajasthan.
