Visible change in health indicators: Nadda
Union Health Minister J P Nadda on Monday said that there has been a visible change in the health indicators of the country and the government is now focused on improving it further.

“There has been a visible change in health indicators in the country. We are going fast on it and will further improve National Health Mission to ensure a good improvement in the health indicators,” he said.

Announcing the launch of ‘National Deworming Day’ to be observed on Tuesday, Nadda said the gap between demand and supply still persists in some areas despite hard work of the medical fraternity and more laborious efforts were needed to address the issue.

“Medical fraternity works very hard and their interventions have shown good impact on the society but there has been a gap in demand and supply. We sometimes face difficulties in addressing the demand-supply problem so we want more strength,” he said.

“Schemes like Janani Shishu Surakhsa and Janani Suraksha Yojna have contributed to good health of mothers and children and we want to bring more changes,” Nadda said.

On the issue of swine flue which has claimed 81 lives in the state this year, Nadda said the Centre has provided all assistance to the state government and was keeping a watch on the matter.
