Healthcare is amongst top priorities for the Odisha government, it seems. A senior minister has said the State Government is working on a new state Health policy to ensure accessible affordable and quality healthcare to masses.
In an endeavour to come up with a robust health policy and vision 2025, the chief District Medical Officers have been directed to collect suggestions from the people.
Feedback and suggestions are required from the people, especially from the grassroot level, to provide quality health service to all, state Health and Family Welfare Minister Naba Das said.
No one will be deprived of free treatment as Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has stressed for ‘Health Care For All‘, Das said, while addressing a conference of chief district medical officers on Wednesday.
Das asked the CDMOs to prepare a 100-days action plan for ensuring quality health service to all.
“The focus has shifted from fragmented service delivery approach to comprehensive and determined method for quality health care,” the minister said.
