Family Health Clinic is the basic building block of Rahnuma-FPAP’s services delivery network. These are community-based centers handled by LHVs and assisted by community motivators.
Rahnuma-FPAP started the project in 1969 to cater for the needs of marginalized and underserved communities of rural areas and urban slums. In 1998 their service capacity was enhanced by including laboratory tests. The volunteers generate public support for FP&RH services through a network of TBAs, CBDs and satisfied clients.
FHC acts as the first referral base of service delivery system; it refers the clients to FHH. It is also supported by mobile teams. At present Rahnuma-FPAP has a network of FHCs providing services to masses at their doorsteps on affordable rates.
FHC project is operative in all provinces of Pakistan. They are providing defined range of contraceptive services to the clients of marginalized communities and underserved population. These clients are referred for contraceptive surgery and other specialized treaments to nearby FHHs. They offer simple laboratory tests and their environment is client friendly and the quality of care is observed strictly. Regular on-job training is provided to FHC staff to improve their professional skills.
