J&K launches public outreach programme to highlight it's flagship programmes
Jammu/IBNS: Jammu & Kashmir government launched a public outreach campaign to raise awareness and highlight the flagship and other government schemes being implemented at the grassroots level to empower the common man on Wednesday.
Among which, a 10-point campaign with a specific focus has been laid to step up the targeted delivery of healthcare schemes for the poor and to ensure 100 percent saturation of eligible beneficiaries.
The ‘One Person One Golden Card’ campaign targets the distribution of 58 lakh golden cards under the AB-PMJAY & AB-PMJAY-SEHAT health insurance schemes among the beneficiaries by organizing special camps at the panchayat level within two months.
Sinha also observed that the J&K government was making best possible efforts to ensure health care is accessible to everyone in the union territory.
“I believe primary health care is people's movement and their participation, mobilization to access the benefits is a key to make this campaign a huge success.
"Sehat is a unique health scheme which does not discriminate and brings out the spirit of social equality in the health sector,” the Lt Governor said.
“Similarly, the ‘Har Ghar Dastak’ campaign launched on Wednesday shall focus on coverage of all unvaccinated cases, besides ensuring sensitization regarding importance of Covid Appropriate Behaviour (CAB),” he said.
J&K has also been a front runner among the Indian states and union territories in vaccinating the eligible population with the Covid19 vaccine.
