Delhi CM Launches Health Mission

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit Monday launched a mission to provide basic health facilities to all in the capital.

The mission "would not only give a thrust to basic healthcare issues, but would also lay equal importance to aspects of preventive health and hygiene", said Dikshit.

"It is being launched to bridge the gaps in healthcare delivery, ensure an affordable, accountable and reliable primary healthcare service and effectively handle the increased allocation for public health," she said.

The mission would have the chief minister as chairperson, the minister of health as co-chairperson and the principal secretary (health) as convener apart from official members, nominated public representatives, non-official members and experts.

It is expected that the mission would help in reducing the infant mortality rate, maternal mortality ratio, total fertility rate, control and reduction of fatalities due to malaria, Kala Azar, filaria, dengue and diarrhoeal diseases.

The mission would also focus on improving health services in urban slums.

It will receive funds under the National Rural Health Mission (NHRM) from the central government.
