Govt committed to ensuring affordable healthcare for all: PM

Friday, June 08, 2018

New Delhi: Noting that access to medicines is a "big concern" for the poor, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said his government is committed to decreasing the financial burden and ensuring affordable healthcare for every Indian. He stressed on the need to make health a mass movement through public participation. Interacting with beneficiaries of the Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Pariyojna (PMBJP) and affordable cardiac stents and knee implants through video bridge, Modi said his government is working to provide more beds, hospitals and doctors and has taken one step after another to bring down treatment cost for the poor. "We have to make efforts to make public health a mass movement through public participation," he said during his fifth such interaction in the series with various beneficiaries of government schemes. The prime minister noted that illness not only creates a huge financial burden on families, especially the poor and middle class, but also affects the socio-economic sector. "It is the endeavour of the government to ensure affordable healthcare to every citizen," he said.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be inclined towards deep introspection. You will realise that it is important to understand your inner self. However, Ganesha says spontaneity is equally vital, and playing with children is a very good way to be spontaneous. Today, you should refrain from taking major decisions of any kind without consulting the right people.
