Karnataka brings out new ‘Vision Document’ for holistic healthcare

This is India’s first-of-its-kind comprehensive healthcare vision document and it is a historical day: Health Minister Sudhakar

Bengaluru, Aug. 24: Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai unveils a first of its kind ‘Vision Document’ at the Doctors’ day event at Vidhana Soudha that aims to lay out a long term plan for holistic development of healthcare sector in the state on Wednesday. Karnataka Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar hailed this day as a historical one.

Speaking at the event, he stated that the document has been prepared under the leadership of Dr Gururaj after a year of thorough research, discussions and debates. A total of 250 experts have provided their inputs to prepare the document, Minister Sudhakar added.

Good practices and policies from other countries have been recorded in this document. The report include development roadmap all the way from primary healthcare at rural areas up to tertiary care and even telemedicine. The document will also be given to Prime Minister Narendra Modi by CM Bommai.

Most people believe a doctor is next to god and it is reflected in the love and trust shown by people towards doctors. Some believe that god created doctors as he isn’t able to be everywhere. This is how our society respects doctors.

Arrive to achieve 100% vaccination for the booster dose:

We have witnessed an unprecedented pandemic in the past few years and doctors have been at the forefront of fighting the disease and helping Karnataka succeed in the fight against COVID-19. Doctors have been at the forefront of India’s vaccination efforts and we have been able to achieve 100% vaccination in the first and second doses because of this. I urge doctors to continue this effort to see to it that 100% coverage is also achieved in the booster dose, Minister Sudhakar said.

We haven’t been able to make cadres in both the Health and Medical Education Department till now. We have created a committee and we will take necessary measures based on the report. We have decided to open 100 new Community health Centers in North Karnataka which has not seen much development. The foundation stone for this project will be laid within a month. We will open ‘Namma Clinics’ in urban areas that have a concentration of poor and other vulnerable sections of the society. 243 such ‘Namma Clinics’ will be opened within two months in Bengaluru, Minister Sudhakar said.
