Govt. making health services accessible at an affordable cost: President
The government aims to make quality health services accessible to all at an affordable cost as part of the national health policy, President Ram Nath Kovind said today.
“It is also the purpose of this policy to organize health facilities for all in a comprehensive and holistic manner,” he said while addressing a function “One Nation – One Health System is the need one hour”, organized by the Arogya Bharati in Bhopal. .
The President said he was glad to see that over the past two decades, Arogya Bharti has been working in an organized manner with a holistic approach to make citizens healthy.
He also noted that Arogya Bharti’s thinking was very clear and simple – when every individual is healthy, all families will be healthy; if every family is healthy, then every village and every town will be healthy and therefore the whole country will be healthy. He commended Arogya Bharati for expanding its activities nationally.
He said that to achieve these goals, the cooperation of all sections of society, especially conscious citizens, as well as the participation of government institutions and the private sector were essential.
In this context, Arogya Bharti has made a very positive effort in raising awareness and bringing people together from all medical systems. Arogya Bharti works in line with the national goal of prioritizing “preventive and promotive” health care with special attention to the prevention of diseases related to modern lifestyle.
