Health Care Investment Policy
In order to provide better treatment and care to the common people in Jammu and Kashmir, the J & K administration has taken a number of measures to streamline the system.
The J & K administration has launched J&K Health Care Investment Policy (HCIP) to encourage private players to set up healthcare infrastructure in the Union Territory.
This Healthcare Investment Policy aims to materialize the UT government’s commitment of providing quality healthcare to its citizens at their door steps. Besides, the document ensures availability of a complete gamut of healthcare services in primary, secondary and tertiary care centers to people of the UT.
The new Unani Medical College and Hospital has been set up with a cost of Rs 32.50 crore at Ganderbal with financial assistance of Rs 17 crore from the Ministry of Ayush under Centrally Sponsored Scheme, Rs 18.25 crore from the J&K government and Rs 38.82 lakh under National AYUSH Mission to make the college operational. The college has an intake capacity of 60 students in BUMS course besides having a hospital of 60 bedded facilities.
AYUSH ministry has sanctioned several other projects in J&K under National AYUSH Mission and erstwhile centrally sponsored schemes including a Government Ayurvedic Medical College at Akhnoor, five 50 bedded integrated Ayush Hospitals in the districts of Kupwara, Kulgam, Kishtwar, Kathua and Samba besides upgrading existing infrastructure of 35 standalone Ayush dispensaries and promoting 571 Ayush dispensaries as health and wellness centres in a phased manner under the flagship programme of Ayushman Bharat by 2023-24.
