Swastha Maharashtra Abhiyan begins


NASHIK: State government’s ambitious Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Swastha Maharashtra Abhiyan, an initiative dedicated to public health has begun from ward No. 25 here in the presence of corporator Bhagyashree Dhomse.

Under the campaign, preventive health check-up camps are being conducted across the state between May 1 and May 27 as a preventive health care measure. During the period, vaccination and treatment for illnesses which include surgery, will be provided to the needy patients.

A door-to-door health survey is being conducted and the needy patients are being provided with online service for registration. The patient, after diagnosis, will be issued an ID number and will be treated/operated further by specialist doctors from Pune and Mumbai depending upon the nature and seriousness of the illness, said health officer Deepika More at the launch of the campaign.

The people should join the Abhiyan in large numbers to bring into reality the dream of ‘healthy India’ seen by PM Modi and CM Fadanvis, appealed Dhomse.

Health officials and local residents including Sarika Kale, Savita Vasave, Sunita Bhoye, Pushpanjali Gaikwad and Manisha Shirsat attended the inaugural drive. Participation of women enthusiasts in considerable numbers made the drive, however, more accountable.
