Health Services in Rajasthan

“Healthy citizens are an asset to the nation” - Mahatama Gandhi

“If money is lost nothing is lost, If health is lost some thing is lost”

“Healthy soul prevails in healthy body”

All these quotes are good enough to describe the importance of health in human life. The ill health deficits the working ability of the person this results in the slow growth of the nation.  Therefore, good health is given priority by every government at national and international fora. This can be better understood from the national policies of every nation where food security is regarded as the prime responsibility of every government. Thus, the above quote by Mahatama Gandhi seems to be quite relevant in the context of national development.

The government of India is quite concerned towards the better health of its citizens and to achieve this objective various programmes viz., National Rural Health Mission , Aids control programmes, mid-day meal programmes etc, are initiated by government from time to time.

The state of Rajasthan is fortunate that every ruling government gave an equal importance to health development programmes and successfully initiated various programmes started by the government of India.
