Dehradun, October 22
Having managed to provide mini hospital-like facilities in 13 districts of Uttarakhand through mobile health units, the Congress-led government in the state is now set to extend the similar facilities to block level.
Under the National Rural Health Mission, the state Health Department will procure at least 50 more vehicles that will be pressed into service at the block level.
“There are a total of 95 blocks in Uttarakhand and at least one new medical van will be able to cover every two blocks. These vans will be equipped with diagnostic facilities and a team of doctors, including senior physicians and gynaecologists,” said Piyush Singh, Additional Director, Health.
These mobile units will be run on the public-private partnership.
