Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan has said that the  funding for the health care sector needs to be stepped up greatly and it has to be ensured that there is equity in the delivery of health care.  Reiterating the government’s commitment towards health and wellbeing of the citizens, Dr Harsh Vardhan highlighted the highest ever funding for the sector in the Union Budget 2021-22 and said, the total sum allocated to the health sector is over 2.2 lakh crore rupees. 

He said, the massive increase of 137 per cent in budgetary allocation for the sector will not only help strengthen health care infrastructure of the country, but also focus on areas of preventive health and holistic well-being. Addressing the inaugural session of Techbharat-2021 today, Dr Harsh Vardhan said, the Pradhan Mantri Aatmanirbhar Swasth Bharat Yojana, with a massive outlay of over 64 thousand crore rupees over the next six years, will develop capacities of primary, secondary and tertiary care, health care systems.

He said, the government has not only fulfilled its duty, by providing relief to the citizens in the unprecedented times of COVID-19, but also turned the crisis into an opportunity by embarking on a mission to establish an Aatmanirbhar Bharat. He also stressed on the need to incorporate science-backed, research-based benefits of our traditional practices of Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha in the delivery of health care and encourage the medical fraternity to incorporate these as part of a holistic health care package
