T.S. Singhdeo, Minister of Health, has stated that proper arrangements for preventing and treating noncommunicable diseases must be made. Today, at Mantralaya Mahanadi Bhawan, the Health Minister addressed a review meeting on arrangements for treating non-communicable diseases under Universal Health Care. He stated that immediate arrangements should be made for patients in Chhattisgarh suffering from noncommunicable diseases such as cancer (oral, breast, cervical, etc.), diabetes, blood pressure, heart disease, and kidney disease.

The Universal Health Coverage meeting was held today at Mantralaya Mahanadi Bhawan, presided over by Health Minister T.S. Singhdeo. The Public Health Foundation of India presented the report on the preliminary plan for universal health coverage in Chhattisgarh at the meeting. According to the report, the Chhattisgarh government is committed to providing quality health services to the state’s general public through universal health coverage. The objective of UHC in Chhattisgarh is to provide equal health facilities for the care health of all. Treatment, diagnostics, medicine availability, rehabilitation, and palliative care all come under quality health services that should be provided at no cost to the general public so that they do not face financial hardship.

According to PHFI representatives, public health spending has risen from 5-6 per cent to 8-10 per cent. People spend less money on health care as a result. The representatives stated that it is critical to maintaining population health while also improving the condition of human resources for health, training, and strengthening primary care service delivery. Expanding insurance coverage and developing an efficient medicine procurement and distribution system is critical for improving health services. By ensuring quality at all levels of healthcare delivery, it is crucial to consider increasing community participation and developing feedback systems. Health Secretary R. Prasanna, Health Director Bhim Singh, Mission Director National Health Mission Bhoskar Vilas Sandipan, and other officers attended the meeting.
