 With Lifestyle Diseases on the Rise, Healthcare Should be Future Focus: Ansari

Vice President M Hamid Ansari on Thursday said with the number of lifestyle diseases increasing, healthcare facilities should be strengthened to meet future demands of the country.

"The facilities we have is sufficient for now, but not sufficient for future," Ansari said while dedicating the new HCG Curie-Abdur Razzaque Ansari Cancer Institute (C-ARACI) to the nation.

He said there has been huge progress in healthcare in the country, but the increase in new diseases has also kept in tandem with the improving system.

"There weren't too many diseases 50 years ago. But now there has been an increase (in diseases) following changing lifestyles and diagnosis of new diseases," he added.

Ansari said development of the health sector was crucial in maintaining the happiness index.

"A healthy person is a happy person. An ailing person, howsoever rich, is an unhappy person," Ansari said while lauding the contribution of non-governmental institutes like Ranchi's C-ARACI in developing health care facilities.
