Madhya Pradesh government hospitals are being enabled to keep pace with the changing times. With a view to implementing the action plan prepared for this purpose, the State Health Committee has sanctioned INR 7,60,63000. Modernising and improving government hospitals are crying needs of the hour as patients have started to turn to somewhere else due to lack of facilities at government hospitals. The state government sincerely intends to bolster medical facilities for the welfare of common man and this large chunk of funds has been sanctioned with the same intent. The new experiments include accreditation of government hospital laboratories which are vital for exact disgnosis of disease. This is being done with a view to ensuring standard and qualitative services. It would tone up working of laboratories. This process would be taken up first in the laboratories of district and civil hospitals and medical colleges while primary health centres would be covered in the second phase. Accreditation would be made by Quality Council of India at a cost of INR 3,51,25000. The State Health Committee has also sanctioned INR 2,17,00,000 for providing double fortified salt under two Central schemes. The second major step for new experiments would be tightening up family welfare works in government hospitals. With this in view, a household survey is getting done by Union government’s undertaking Hindustan Latex Limited Family Planning Promotion Trust (HLFPPT). INR 52 lakh has been sanctioned under this head. Improving facilities for treatment in animal bite cases is the third major step for improvement. For this, INR 9,00,000 been earmarked. A decision has been taken to open Regional Diagnostic Centre at every district hospital. With this, dependence on some selected major cities for diagnosis of complex diseases would come to an end. The task would be accomplished with the cooperation of Mumbai-based Hosmec Institute. INR 54,72,000 has been sanctioned for achieving this goal. The committee has also sanctioned INR 59,22,700 for mapping of medical manuals, checking of sub-health centres’ records and facilities available there. INR 6,30,000 has been sanctioned for compiling Health Act and Rules while INR 6,63,000 has been allocated for improving training institutes. Similarly, INR 4,50,000 has been earmarked for conducting a survey of doctors’ availability as per requirements of rural areas.
