Public wellbeing is the priority of the J & K administration and they have started working for the health of all by different schemes.
Recently LG Manoj Sinha in a conclave under the title Jashn-e-Sehat said that he has said to his officers, leaving no one behind is not just a mantra for me but it is also my commitment to the people. Public well-being is always at the center of our policies and our spending on health programs has risen as compared to many developed and bigger states.
He highlighted the achievements of J&K while further adding that the UT is emerging as a shining example across the country with world class health infrastructure. Besides, 7 new medical colleges work is underway on 2 AIIMS, 2 State Cancer Institute’s, 2 Bone & Joint hospitals and more than 300 health infrastructure projects.
In the last three years, 2742 health and wellness centers have been established; 207 Advanced Life Support Ambulances and 286 Basic Life Support Ambulances have been dedicated for the health care of the general public, he further added.
In order to shift towards automated service delivery, we have launched an ‘e-SAHAJ’ project which entails online appointment from doctors, and digitization of patient’s medical records etc. In the first phase of e-SAHAJ, 575 health facilities have been covered and it is integrated with the Rapid Assessment System, which will also provide real time feedback from common citizens.
He congratulated the people of Jammu Kashmir and appreciated the dedicated efforts of health care workers, officers of State Health Agency and National Health Mission for the robust implementation of the health insurance schemes.
