Government of India to Launch Cleanliness Awards for Public Healthcare Facilities

Inorder to promote cleanliness, hygiene and infection control practices at public healthcare facilities in India; the government has planned to announce awards.

Health Minister J P Nadda will launch the initiative to award public health facilities, 'Kayakalp', and also release 'Swachhata' guidelines for these facilities.


The initiative also aims to provide incentives to facilities that show exemplary performance in adhering to standard protocols of cleanliness and infection control.

They have also planned to inculcate a culture of ongoing assessment and peer review the performance related to hygiene, cleanliness and sanitation.

Under the health secretary or mission director a state-level award committee will be constituted while a three to five-member committee at the district level will be constituted under the district magistrate or the Chief Medical Officer (CMO).

The awards will be announced for the 'Best two district hospitals in each state', 'Best two Community Health Centres' (CHC) or sub-district hospitals and one award for 'Primary Health Centre in every district'. "Assessment would be done sequentially through a three tier system - Internal assessment followed by Peer assessment and then external assessment," Health Ministry said.
