Dedicates critical care ambulance to SDH Beerwah

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference President Dr Farooq Abdullah on Saturday called for comprehensive Multi tier health policy for the state that focuses on reform.
Farooq said that the need of hour was to establish mechanisms that can amplify the availability of health care institutions to people across the state.
Addressing a public meet at Beerwah constituency, he said that the access to effective health care systems was a major problem in the developing world.
“Our state is geographically very diverse. There is a stark unevenness in the topography of the state. Providing up to date and speedy health care services to the people living in far-flung areas has always been a challenge,” the NC President said.
To ensure well-being of our people across the state, Farooq said that the government has to work out a “multi pronged policy”.
“However, for poor the government has to subsidize and finance the medical care. I am sure with Omar Sahib in the vanguard of the government, the party will revolutionize the health sector in the state,” he added.
Farooq also dedicated a critical care ambulance to Sub district Hospital Beerwah, on the occasion.
He was accompanied by party vice president Omar Abdullah and political advisor to Omar, Tanvir Sadiq.
Farooq said that dedicating an ambulance to the area was “just a small spec of what party intends to do for the area in particular and the state in general”.
He further added that the challenge for the forthcoming government was to increase the quality of health care.
“Once in power, the NC government under the able and dynamic Omar sahib will ensure heavy emphasis on subsidizing health care for poor,” he said.
Farooq said that his party will come up with a course of action towards helping those families whose loved ones were suffering from fatal ailments.
He said that NC, if voted to power in the state, will undertake and look after the nutrition and medication of the patients suffering from critical diseases.
“We in our party firmly believe that people are the source of power and the government is there only to serve them. I am sure we will be able to achieve that anticipated end of revolutionizing the heath sector of state through effective policy interventions and out of pocket spending,” he said.
