Today, Union Health Minister Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya cycled to inaugurate the Health Pavilion. The first-ever cycle rally organized at the India International Trade Fair aims to spread awareness and promote a healthy active lifestyle in view of the rising burden of Non-Communicable Diseases. It is a month-long campaign and a part of ‘Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav’.

Addressing the event, Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya said the event will help to create awareness about preventive health. He mentioned that the Cabinet has a target to conduct 7.5 lakh Wellness Sessions and 75 lakh NCD screenings across the country through the Ayushman Bharat Health and Wellness Centres. He hoped that the early screening will aid in the timely identification of diseases.

“This is part of the overarching concept of Total Health, which is comprehensive including preventive and promotive health. Fit India, Eat Right India, Khelo India, and yoga form part of the Total Health vision of Prime Minister which will lay the foundations for a healthy and productive New India,” he added.

He lauded the efforts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in administering the COVID-19 jabs across the nation. He expressed gratitude to the media houses for creating awareness against rumors, misinformation and removing hesitancy. Dr. Mandaviya also spoke on the Ayushmann Bharat Health Infrastructure Mission launched recently by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to deal with any future pandemic and improve health infrastructure. Reportedly, Rs. 64,000 crores have been sanctioned by the Government of India so that it will strengthen the health infrastructure of the country.

Furthermore, he mentioned the partnership with the private sector in providing healthcare. He was accompanied by senior officers of the Health Ministry including Dr. Balram Bhargava, DG, ICMR, Arun Singhal, CEO, FSSAI, Dr, Dharmender Gangwar, AS&FA, and others.
