Under the National Non-Communicable Disease Program, citizens are being screened for hypertension, heart diseases, diabetes and cancer.

"To meet the ever-increasing load of heart diseases, we need to set up more CCUs. For this, we need more cardiologists and if they are not available, we will have to develop appropriate skills of our doctors to do not only successful screening but also provide treatment," Hooda said.
