Union Health Minister Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya on Thursday inaugurated a three-day Swasthya Chintan Shivir- Health Summit at Kevadiya in Gujarat.
Speaking on this occasion, Dr. Mandaviya said that the main objective of this Chintan Shivir will be a detailed discussion on various topics and policies related to the health sector and discussion on the future road map with a holistic approach. He said that the nectar emanating from this Shivir through ‘Sabka Prayas’ will give a new impetus to the goal of ‘Healthy India’.
Dr. Mandaviya said that the Narendra Modi Government is committed to develop health facilities as a common model for the people by making them qualitative, accessible and affordable. He assured everyone to work with participation and cooperation by taking the goal of ‘Healthy State, Healthy Nation’.
This Swasthya Chintan Shivir is being organized as a part of the 14th Convention of the Central Council of Health and Family Welfare – CCHFW. The Health Ministers of different States and Union Territories along with members of NITI Aayog and other senior officials are participating in this summit. It will also discuss India’s fight against COVID-19 and the Centre’s initiative on ‘Heal by India and Heal in India’.
Another significant focus area in this Swasthya Chintan Shivir is to inspire states to boost National Health Infrastructure since the budget assigned to various States and Union Territories is often seen to be under-utilized.
