DHDC Bannu


The first efforts to improve human capacity in the Health Sector were started by the World Bank and IDA funded Family Health Project which was launched in 1992. One Provincial Health Development Center and seven Divisional Health Development Center including Divisional Health Development Center Bannu were established to organize in-service and on-the-job training for all categories of health personnel, with special emphasis on management training. The number of DHDCs have now been reduced to Five.  Divisional Health Development Center (DHDC) Bannu is working as a sub office of Provincial Health Services Academy Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Peshawar, with the aim of capacity building of Human Resource, attached with the health department at the district level, as elsewhere in the province.
