University Health Service
  About UHS  >>     History  
The whole business started after World War II. The hygienic condition of the territory was very poor and pulmonary tuberculosis was prevalent. A number of students were affected. Chest X-ray examination and nutritional advice were offered to the students as preventive measure.
In 1948, a part-time Student Health Service was set up, with just 2 rooms, 0.5 doctor and 0.5 nurse. This was expanded to a formal University Health Service on 1st January, 1956.
