 Women's Day Initiative by Government- 3-day Campaign for Better Health of Women

To mark the International Women's Day, which is held on March 8, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has announced that it will launch a 3-day special nationwide campaign to ensure better health for women in the country.

Union Health Minister JP Nadda said, "Under the initiative, special health check-up camps will be held at district hospitals, sub-district hospitals (SDHs) and community health centers (CHCs) on the three days. These will offer free of charge health check-up to all women, including pregnant women across the country. The ministry is organizing various activities to mark the International Women's Day as its commitment to women's health. We are committed to better health of women of the country and this initiative will go a long way in helping us reach this objective."
