PHCs 67 State Allophatic Dispensaries and 239 Subcentres are functioning in the District. In above facilities some units are functioning in Govt. Building, some are under construction and some units are in rented building .

The primary tier has three types of health care institutions namely, a Sub-Centre (SC) for a population of 3000 to 5000, a Primary Health Centre (PHC) for 20,000 to 30,000 population and a Community Health Centre (CHC) for every 50,000 population.

The district hospitals function as the secondary tier of care for the rural population. Tertiary health care is provided by highly specialised hospitals and health care institutions that are well equipped with sophisticated diagnostic and investigative facilities.

The health set-up in Pauri is thus designed in a three-tier fashion : Health Pyramid of Pauri (Public)
