Health Services to Improve in Bihar Villages

Beginning next month, state-of–the-art medical services will be available at the doorsteps of many impoverished villages of Bihar, thanks to a joint initiative of the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs and the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPIO).
At a meeting between representatives of the Union Ministry and the State Health Department, held in New Delhi on May 29, it was decided to launch a pilot project in Bihar to augment the state’s health facilities. Confirming the development, Health Minister Chandra Mohan Rai told HT that, in all likelihood, the project would be launched by late July.
As planned, one village (with a population of 5,000 to 10,000 persons) in each district will initially be adopted for a thorough medical check-up by the specialists. If needed, the patients would be transported to medical college hospitals for further treatment.
