Delhiites to get free medical care from Jan 1

Good news for Delhiites, as the Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party government decided to provide free medical tests from January 1, 2023, at government hospitals and mohalla clinics.

Currently, 212 medical tests are offered free of cost by the city government. The Delhi government has added 238 more tests to the number, making it 450.

With this, 450 medical tests will be provided free of cost by the Delhi government at city hospitals and health centres.

The Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal approved a health department proposal for adding more medical tests to the list.

He said the move would help many people who could not afford private healthcare.

The cost of healthcare has been rising for the past few years. The pandemic affected the health as well as the financial condition of many people.

Several people are suffering from long-Covid symptoms. These symptoms range from minor to severe.

Even people who have been affected mildly by the pandemic are also having health issues.

In this context, free medical tests will help people diagnose the condition and get treatment easily, says the Delhi government.

Health and education are the two most important sectors for any country. Quality health and education should be accessible to all irrespective of their economic status.

Delhi CM Kejriwal said that his government’s mission is to provide quality healthcare solutions and education to residents of Delhi.

As healthcare is becoming more expensive, many people cannot afford private healthcare. Hence, the government decided to offer medical tests free at healthcare centres and mohalla clinics to people.

AAP recently won majority wards in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi elections. It ended the BJP’s 15-year rule by winning 134 wards in these elections.

After that, the Delhi government decided to divide the Union Territory into 12 zones and assign the responsibility of these zones to senior leaders. Each leader will have to take care of three zones.

They have to coordinate with councillors of their zones and work for the welfare of the people. In addition, they will hold meetings with local people to understand their problems. They will bring these problems to the notice of the government.
