Portable mohalla Clinic
The Delhi government intends to give the AAP administration's signature initiative, mohalla clinics, a new spin. Near Shakurbasti, two mohalla clinics are being built in transportable shipping containers. According to sources, a proposal is being considered to duplicate similar mobile mohalla clinics in more densely populated areas. This concept could be a viable solution to the space constraints that have impeded the development of healthcare facilities in specialised structures.
Following the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic last year, the Delhi government urged mohalla clinics to undertake COVID-19 testing as part of a larger effort by the Delhi government to increase testing in the wake of an increase in coronavirus infections. The containers' clinics will be completely air-conditioned.In March this year, when presenting a Rs 69,000-crore budget for the fiscal year 2021-22, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who also bears the financial responsibility, claimed that the healthcare sector will receive Rs 9,934 crore, or nearly 14% of the overall budget.
He also added that dedicated women mohalla clinics will be established throughout the city in the future fiscal year to give free gynaecological and other medical care to them within walking distance of their homes.According to Sisodia, the government built Aam Aadmi Mohalla Clinics to offer people with treatment and medications for minor illnesses for which they would otherwise have to travel long distances or pay a high price at a private clinic.
The portable containers are simple to assemble and store in small spaces. The purpose of these mohalla clinics, according to Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain, is to reach areas where healthcare infrastructure is lacking.On August 29, Jain tweeted that he had visited the construction site of the two new mohalla clinics. He said that the clinics are simple to set up and move in "cluster locations like Jhuggi-Bastis" and "small alleys with limited access to healthcare facilities."
