Recently in Baramulla district at Uri a medical camp was organized by the government to provide Free Consultations, Diagnostic Tests & Health Scheme Awareness to common people.

The Health Department organized this event under the Ayushman Bhava Campaign, aiming to extend quality healthcare services to the community.

A specialized team of doctors from GMC Baramulla, led by Prof. Abdul Majid, in collaboration with doctors from Block Uri’s healthcare centers, provided free counseling and examinations across various medical disciplines, encompassing gynecology, dermatology, orthopedics, and general surgery etc. Free diagnostic tests for Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) and TB screening were conducted, complemented by the provision of free medications to patients examined during the Mela.

A total of about 620 beneficiaries attended the Mela, who were extensively briefed on various health schemes and guided on the necessary steps to access these benefits. Additionally, beneficiaries were registered for Golden-cards and ABHA cards, ensuring they could avail themselves of insurance and holistic healthcare scheme benefits.

Speaking during the event, the CMO highlighted the ‘Ayushman Bhava’ initiative as a governmental commitment to saturate healthcare services across villages and towns, in line with the commitment to ensure reach to the last mile and enable access to health care services to everyone in the society.
