CM dedicates 100 new Mohalla Clinics to Delhi

NEW DELHI: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday inaugurated 100 new Mohalla Clinics, a primary health service aimed at providing medical facilities to people.

The Capital already has 202 operational Mohalla Clinics, apart from 30 evening shift clinics.

Participating in a function at the newly constructed Mohalla Clinic near the Sangam Vihar flyover in Timarpur, the Chief Minister said, "It has been our mission to provide high quality, free healthcare facilities to all residents of Delhi, within a 1-kilometer radius of their homes. We are now close to achieving this goal. On days like this, I feel that the purpose of ordinary citizens entering politics has been fulfilled."

This is for the first time in the world that 100 primary health centres are being opened for public in one go, he claimed. He also said that the government will soon set up mohalla clinics in rented accommodation.

Health Minister Satyendra Jain, who was also present on the occasion, claimed that over the next two and a half months about two hundred more Mohalla Clinics will be ready to launch.

The Mohalla Clinics, which are presently operational in Delhi attend about 35,000 to 40,000 patients each day and have treated 1.69 crore patients so far while conducting almost 16 lakh tests. The AAP government has set a target of 1,000 Mohalla Clinics across the city.
