Modern health care

The Haryana state government, in an effort to improve access to health care in the state, has decided to implement a health insurance scheme for the poor, with the government bearing the cost of the premium. This news was disclosed by chief minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar, at an inauguration event.

According to Khattar, the state government is also looking to provide modern health care services by establishing a web of medical colleges, across districts. These medical colleges, being set up in Sirsa, Palwal, Dadri, Rewari and Kurukshetra districts, will take on the task of meeting the requirements for doctors in government hospitals as well.

To improve the skills of these new doctors in modern health care, specialist courses in neurosurgery, neurology and pathology will be made available at Pandit Bhagwat Dayal Sharma Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS) in 2017-18. The medical college at Nuh meanwhile, will provide dental, nursing and physiotherapy courses.

Ayurveda, yoga and naturopathy, unani, siddha and homeopathy (AYUSH) colleges are also being set up by the government, in association with various private organisations. This public-private partnership (PPP) is a new method in the health care sector to help in delivering more efficient services.

For example, the infrastructure of the government hospitals in five districts of Haryana is being improved, through PPP. Social service organisations are helping install CT and MRI scanners in the hospitals. Dialysis machines and catheterization laboratories (catch labs) have also been installed and established.
