Free health screening for school children Nov 14

Oct 28, 2011 - 8:03:00 PM
Dikshit also directed the health department to conduct check-ups which include medical testing of all possible diseases as well as providing immunisation if required.

 
[RxPG] New Delhi, Oct 28 - Free medical treatment and health check-ups will be conducted by the Delhi government for nearly 14 lakh school children under a scheme that is to be rolled out on Children's Day Nov 14.

The 'Chacha Nehru Sehat Yojana' was announced in Delhi government's budget for 2011-12 and a corpus fund of Rs.100 crore was set up for its implementation.

Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit Friday reviewed the preparation for the launch of the scheme which will provide free health care to children up to the age of 14 years.

'About 117 teams, each consisting of a doctor, nurse and computer data entry operator, are being set up for the screening. One team will screen 60 children in a day,' a government official said.

The scheme will be implemented in 100 schools and later it will be extended to the remaining 854 government-run schools in the capital, according to the government.

'The government will prepare a comprehensive health profile of all the school children and will keep them in an electronic format,' the official said.

Dikshit also directed the health department to conduct check-ups which include medical testing of all possible diseases as well as providing immunisation if required.

Apart from free general check-up, the government will also take care of children suffering from various diseases and provide free medicines.
