These PHCs plays a vital role in fulfilling the basic health services for all the diseases by giving primary diagnosis and screening facility at nearby. In every PHC there is a special Non-Communicable Disease (NCD) staff nurse who exclusively concentrates the Non communicable disease patients; they provide services from screening till their palliative care. The services provided by the PHCs are not utilized by the people to its fullest due to some of the inconvenience faced by them.
