“The Prime Minister’s Jan Arogya Abhiyan is a call to arms to the medical fraternity to rise to the occasion and work towards easing the healthcare woes of crores of Indians! We welcome the initiative, by which the Government takes on the burden, and shares the cost of providing healthcare to those who cannot afford it. It is heartening to see the rapid progress made in a short time since the scheme was announced, and will be welcome relief to millions of poor patients when it is launched next month. The technology backbone of the Ayushman Bharat will help ensure streamlining of the process of healthcare delivery to those who need it the most. As the first step towards Universal Health Coverage, this is a pivotal moment in the country’s healthcare journey that will require the entire healthcare ecosystem, public and private, to work with a collective sense of purpose and synchrony. The Apollo Hospitals group will support this initiative whole-heartedly as part of our continuing efforts towards universal access. A healthy nation will be an engine of economic growth – and this Independence Day, we re-dedicate ourselves to our commitment to build a Healthy and Happy India.”
