For those in the state who haven’t yet obtained an Ayushman Card for free medical treatment, they can now download the Ayushman Bharat app on their mobile phones to get one. The National Health Authority (NHA) has introduced this app for easy access to Ayushman cards. Moreover, there will be no more difficulties in creating Ayushman cards at Jan Suvidha Kendras.
The NHA has addressed login issues on its portal. On Saturday, Health Minister Dr. Dhan Singh Rawat met with Union Health Minister Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya and briefed him about the ongoing Ayushman Bhav campaign in the state.
He also discussed the technical issues that were being faced in Ayushman card creation. Central Minister directed the NHA officials to resolve these issues. Following this, the Health Minister held a meeting with NHA officials.
Accelerated Work in Progress for Aadhaar IDs
The Health Minister explained that the National Health Authority has sent a technical team along with the State Coordinator Uttarakhand to make the Ayushman card creation process more convenient. The team has mapped all Jan Suvidha Kendras (CSKs) across the state and resolved the login issue on the NHA portal. The work for creating Aadhaar IDs is also progressing rapidly.
All educational institutions have been directed to create Ayushman cards and Aadhaar IDs for students aged over five years. From September 26 to October 2, a campaign for Ayushman card and Aadhaar ID creation will be conducted in all districts of the state.
Each district aims to create 10,000 Aadhaar IDs and 5,000 Ayushman cards daily. CMs have been instructed to provide information regarding this matter. The CMO will have to send daily reports to the Health Department and the Government. No negligence will be tolerated in this regard.
District Magistrates to Lead Ayushman Bhav Campaign
The Health Minister mentioned that District Magistrates have been appointed as nodal officers for the Ayushman Bhav campaign. Each District Magistrate will coordinate with various departments, including the Health Department, Social Welfare, Tribal Welfare, School Education, Higher Education, Technical Education, Women Empowerment, Child Development, and Panchayati Raj and Urban Development departments, to make the campaign a success. District Magistrates will review the campaign daily and send reports to the Government.
