MP health infrastructure needs urgent attention

Inspite of all proclamations and announcements by the state of Madhya Pradesh, the fact of the matter in case of Public health and family welfare, Madhya Pradesh lacks the much needed infrastructure in health to match the announced proclaimations. The state has 26 % less then needed, the number of Primary Health Centres in the state. This is most basic requirement and kind of first referal unit in villages of the state. More alarming is that in case of sub health centres the number is 16 % less.

Community Health Centres and Civil Hospitals, major dependency units,the number is 25 % less. Though state has announced number of schemes but if you have weak infrastructure, how one is going to acheive the same is an issue of debate - a call to media and civil society.
