Narendra Modi's first visit to Bijapur: First health centre, internet scheme inaugurated

PM Narendra Modi. Under Ayushman Bharat the govt has decided to transform 1.5 lakh sub health centres to health and wellness centres in a bid to provide comprehensive primary healthcare

PM Narendra Modi on Saturday flagged off the much-anticipated Ayushman Bharat scheme and the first passenger train in the heart of Maoist-affected territory in Chhattisgarh. "Earlier, there were only 2 medical colleges but now there are 10 medical colleges", PM Modi said.

Under Ayushman Bharat, the government aims to set up 1.5 lakh wellness centres by 2022 that will leverage on comprehensive primary health care for preventive, promotive and curative care. Modi is the first Prime Minister to visit the district. By treading on old paths, you can never reach new destinations. "In all the districts of the country, the rule providing for allocation of a part of the income from mining to local tribal folk has been implemented", said PM Modi.

Noting that the focus has for always been on insurance, the government believes the Ayushman Bharat scheme will help people look at comprehensive, affordable, preventive and primary care. The second component of Ayushman Bharat is to provide insurance cover to 40% of India's population for secondary and tertiary care. The tracks link north Bastar to the railway map. "In Chhattisgarh we have witnessed revolutionary changes in health services".
