Government has stepped up its efforts to create a robust health infrastructure in the country. In the last six years, the government has taken several major steps to provide affordable and quality healthcare to the people.

Building a New India where every person gets affordable healthcare services is the primary goal of the central government. To achieve this target, the government has taken several historic decisions in the last few years which proved instrumental in creating the modern health care system.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced to provide 15 thousand crore rupees for building the health infrastructure in the country. Over 30 thousand crore rupees were spent on setting up new AIIMS in the country.

Besides, 75 new government medical colleges have also been approved by the government. Ayushman Bharat-Pradhan Mantri Jan ArogyaYojana has also proved to be a new lifeline in the lives of poor people. Under this scheme, over one crore hospital treatments have been provided to the poor people so far.

Women and Child health care is one of the key focus areas of the government. To provide healthy nutrition and treatment to women and children, several schemes like Poshan Abhiyan, Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Surakshit Matritav Abhiyan were initiated which resulted in low maternal and child mortality rate.
