He said that efforts to reform the health sector have been impressive. We have addressed the health infrastructure issue with a comprehensive and long-term national vision under the guidance of Hon’ble Prime Minister and even the far-flung areas now have adequate, affordable, and reliable healthcare facilities.
New infrastructure has been built at a cost of Rs 7177 crore; 140 projects have been completed by spending Rs 881 crore to strengthen basic health facilities in all the districts. Moreover, Rs 7873 crore has been allocated for the health sector in this year’s budget, which will create unprecedented health facilities in Jammu and Kashmir.
He expressed gratitude to the Doctors, paramedics, healthcare workers for their tireless contribution towards making J&K a leading UT in Covid management and vaccination in the country.
To serve the one in need is our culture. We must dedicate ourselves to the service of mankind with responsibility, compassion, and utmost sensitivity and make the healthcare facilities easily accessible to all.
He called upon departments implementing various social welfare schemes to be proactive to the needs and issues of the elderly. “It is the responsibility of all to make them aware of this new facility which is available in the district hospital.
