The National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) was launched in April 2005 to provide accessible, affordable, accountable, effective and reliable healthcare facilities in the rural areas of the country especially to poor and vulnerable sections of the population. The key strategy of NRHM was to bridge gaps in healthcare facilities, facilitate decentralised planning in the health sector, and provide an overarching umbrella to existing disease control programmes run by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India.

The Mission was to be funded by the Governments of India and Uttar Pradesh in the ratio of 85:15 and its goals were to be achieved under the aegis of State Health Mission (SHM) headed by the Chief Minister. The State Health Society (SHS) and the State Programme Management Unit (SPMU) were to implement the Mission through District Health Societies (DHSs) at the District level and Rogi Kalyan Samitis (RKSs) at Hospital level.

NRHM emphasised community planning, management and monitoring at all levels and also convergence of various health determinants such as nutrition, drinking water, hygiene, sanitation etc., with activities under NRHM. Community participation was the keystone of NRHM as it aimed to transfer control and ownership of all health related assets to the community by 31 March 2012. Capacity building - physical and human infrastructure - was part of the key strategy of NRHM. Indian Public Health Standards (IPHS) were to be targeted and achieved.
