Transforming JK: Govt's ‘Har Ghar Dastak’ campaign aims to inoculate eligible population

Jammu/IBNS: The Jammu and Kashmir administration left no stone unturned in its endeavour to vaccinate the eligible population with COVID-19 vaccines across J&K, an official press release said. 

In that direction, the government initiated a house to house campaign- “Har Ghar Dastak” to inoculate the entire eligible population of the union territory. 

The “Har Ghar Dastak” campaign launched in November last year focuses on coverage of all unvaccinated cases, besides ensuring sensitization regarding importance of Covid Appropriate Behaviour (CAB) and masks. 

The main aim of the campaign is to saturate all eligible beneficiaries with first dose of COVID vaccination and devising targeted plans in context of doses given in August and September, 2021 to ensure coverage of all beneficiaries due for second dose by exponentially increasing the pace of vaccination. 

In addition, the campaign also focuses to raise awareness and highlight the flagship government schemes being implemented at the grassroots level. 

Under this campaign, specific focus has also been laid to step up the targeted delivery of healthcare schemes for the poor and ensure 100 percent saturation of eligible beneficiaries in a mission mode.  

The “Har Ghar Dastak” also aims to cover the underprivileged families from rural backgrounds and ensure greater coverage with easy access to affordable healthcare facilities during health emergencies. 

This door-to-door campaign also focuses on achieving 100 percent enrollment under the Ayushman Bharat scheme. 

To achieve maximum results, the health care workers travelled the length and breadth of the region to cover each and every individual residing in J&K.

The J&K administration led by Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha, has made it a point that the health care should be accessible to everyone.
