PM Modi launches Ayushman Bharat health infrastructure mission
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday launched Ayushman Bharat's health infrastructure mission to his parliamentary constituency of Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, one of the largest health infrastructure strengthening programs in India.
The Prime Minister also inaugurated several development projects worth more than 5.2 trillion yen for his constituency.
Pradhan Mantri Ayushman Bharat Health Infrastructure Mission is one of the largest programs in all of India aimed at strengthening health infrastructure across the country. It is a complement to the National Health Mission.
The aim is to fill gaps in public health infrastructure, especially in intensive care and primary care in urban and rural areas. It will support 17,788 nationwide health and wellness centers in 10 priority states. In addition, 11,024 urban health and wellness centers are under construction in all states.
As a result, intensive care services will be available through exclusive intensive care hospital blocks in all provinces of the country with populations over five lakh, while other provinces will be covered by referral services.
A network of labs across the country will give people access to a full range of diagnostic services in the public health system, and integrated public health labs will be established in all districts.
The program will establish a National Health Facility, four new National Virology Institutes, a WHO Regional Research Platform for Southeast Asia, nine Level III Biosafety Laboratories and five new National Regional Research Centers.
