Govt working towards strengthening, transforming health sector: PM Modi

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that the Central government is working towards transforming the health sector of the country and is increasing its strength, self-reliance in the sector. The PM said the Central government wants to ensure that every district in the country has at least one medical college or an institution that provides post-graduate medical education.

 PM Modi said the above statement while addressing the event, after laying the foundation stone of four medical colleges in Banswara, Sirohi, Hanumangarh and Dausa districts of Rajasthan. The Prime Minister further said, "This pandemic has taught a lot in the health sector across the world. Every country is engaged in dealing with this crisis in its own way. India has resolved to increase its strength, self-reliance during this time. The beginning of work on four medical colleges in Rajasthan and CIPET-Jaipur is a key step in this regard."

He went on to say that "Since 2014, the Central government has approved 23 new medical colleges for Rajasthan. Out of this, seven medical colleges are already functional and we are laying the foundation for four of them today."   The Prime Minister recalled that improving the health sector in Gujarat came as a challenge to him when he became the Chief Minister of Gujarat in 2001. He said, "From medical education to health infrastructure to medical facilities, we tried to change the situation."

"The health system of our country was divided at several levels. There was a lack of connectivity and collective approach in health systems between states. There was a massive gap between primary healthcare and big hospitals. It was of paramount importance to remove these bottlenecks. To transform the medical system, we worked on a new medical system for the entire country. Initiatives such as Swachh Bharat, Ayushman Bharat and Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission are all part of that view," the Prime Minister said.
