Sensitization on Ayushman Bharat Diwas held


Dimapur, April 30: A 2-day sensitization programme for village councils and ASHAs on Ayushman Bharat Diwas -PM-NHPM was held at PMTI (Paramedical Training Institute), Kohima on April 28.
A release from Chief Medical Office Kohima said the Government of India is launching Pradhan Mantri National Health Protection Mission to provide protection to cover poor, vulnerable and downtrodden families of both rural and urban areas. The scheme is an entitlement based and entitlement of the beneficiary is decided on the basis of family being figure in socio – Economic Caste Census (SECC) data.
To make this a success, it is critical to reach the targeted beneficiaries effectively and inform them about the scheme details and their entitlements. Identification of eligible beneficiaries and additional information such as mobile phone number, ration ard number and family details is to be captured on Ayushman Bharat Diwas during Gram Swaraj Abhiyaan’s sittings as initiated by the Government of India. The sensitization programme was attended by BPMs & BACs to coordinate and bring out maximal progress in the block level. (Page News Service)
