The government of Rajasthan, led by Vasundhara Raje has crossed all barriers to provide comprehensive health care services to the people. With the various schemes and initiatives implemented by the government, there has been an assured rise in the health index of the people of the state.
The state government has also opened gates for the private players to invest in the state health care services. The government along with the PPP (public-private partnership) provides proper healthcare services to improve the health conditions of the women and children. The step taken by the government involves running up of the primary health centers (PHC) schemes through the public-private partnership.
Making an effort in this direction, a delegation of government officials and doctors from South Africa visited the desert state to learn about the measures taken by the government to improve the health indicators of the state. It’s an achievement for Rajasthan, for it had borne the ‘BIMARU’ tag for nearly a decade.
The delegation from South Africa also met Rajasthan health minister Kalicharan Saraf. They inspected a sub-health center in Kundaly Nadi in Sawai Madhopur, run by a private organization. They also visited the primary health center (PHC) which has been recently developed as Adarsh PHC. At present, there are 295 Adarsh PHCs in the state and 600 more PHCs will be converted into Adarsh PHC.
Today maternal and infant mortality is the cause of the concern in the state. Special initiatives must be taken by the government towards this as soon as possible.
Thus, the government of Rajasthan is promoting medical and healthcare sector by providing an opportunity for the private sectors to invest in medical and healthcare institutions and medical, dental and paramedical colleges. This step will facilitate the establishment of quality health institutions within the framework. Rajasthan is already a major tourist destination and has tremendous potential for extending it into medical tourism.
