National Health Mission
The Jammu and Kashmir government is implementing various schemes under National Health Mission and recently LG Manoj Sinha launched a social security scheme for employees under the National Health Mission and also handed over ex-gratia cheques of Rs 10 lakhs each to the NoKs of the deceased employees of NHM.
He said that the augmented facilities will contribute towards further strengthening of the healthcare system.
The J & K Government is committed to the goal of health for all. We are determined to ensure that the new health facilities in various districts promote social equality and its benefits reach our brothers and sisters living in far-flung areas.
The MoU with Tata Memorial Hospital for academic & technical collaboration will help in developing ultra-modern tertiary cancer care facilities & technical expertise to faculty, paramedical staff and integration of State Cancer Institute into National Cancer Grid, Tata Memorial Centre.
He said that the healthcare infrastructure has changed dramatically since 2014. Earlier, a privileged few were enjoying medical care facilities in big cities and abroad while the majority of the population did not have access even to ordinary health care facilities. With the commitment to public health, we ensured high-quality healthcare for all.
Before 2019, there were only 129 health and wellness centers across Jammu and Kashmir. 1275 new health and wellness centers have been set up in two years, according to the recently released government data.
