PM Narendra Modi to roll out Aysuhman Bharat tomorrow


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday inaugurated the first healthcare and wellness centre under Ayushman Bharat Yojna, in Chhattisgarh's Bijapur. Addressing the tribals, Modi said: "I have come to Bijapur with Taking inspiration from Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar, I have come to Bijapur to give the people and the administration here the confidence that the government at the Centre is yours, it supports your wishes and aspirations". "In Chhattisgarh we have witnessed revolutionary changes in health services".

Ayushman Bharat-National Health Protection Mission (NHPM) dubbed as "Modicare", aims to benefit around 50 crore people (from about 10 crore families) by providing coverage from secondary and many tertiary hospitalizations.

The Prime Minister would also launch Health and Wellness Centre component of the Ayushman Bharat Programme in this panchayat as part of the visit.

In another tweet, the BJP said: 'One more way in which women are respected". PM Modi said the objective of these centres is not only to treat patients, but they will help prevent spreading illness. He said there will be free dialysis facility for the poor of the state and doctors will be available 24 hours.
