“Swasthya Chintan Shivir, a national meeting, enables sharing of insights, best practices, valuable experiences, and suggestions from various states to enrich our policies aimed at designing schemes for largest beneficiary welfare.” This was stated by Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare Dr Mansukh Mandaviya as he inaugurated a two day long Swasthya Chintan Shivir- the 15th Conference of Central Council of Health and Family Welfare, in Dehradun on 14 July.

He was joined by the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, Pushkar Singh Dhami, the Chief Minister of Sikkim, Prem Singh Tamang; Union Ministers of State for Health Dr Bharati Pravin Pawar, and Prof. SP Singh Baghel, and Dr VK Paul, Member (Health), NITI Aayog.

“In this Amrit Kaal, let us take inspiration from our own knowledge, and develop our own health model. We should resolve to remove burden of diseases such as Leprosy, TB, Sickle Cell Anaemia etc., from various states, and saturate states with Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PM-JAY) cards”, said Dr Mandaviya.

Various books including Compendium of Best Practices, Ayushman Bharat, Health and Wellness Centres- Success Stories from the Field, Research to Action-The Insights and Policy implications, and Recommendations for Medical Rehabilitation of Persons Injured after an Earthquake were released at the inaugural event.
