Want to see Bihar among top five in medical services: Nitish
 
Patna, Oct 10 (PTI) Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today said the state government has resolved to make Bihar rank among the top five states in providing healthcare services.

The Bihar government has started the second round of reforms in the healthcare sector, an official release quoted Kumar as saying.

Various medical facilities like treatment of cancer, and liver and kidney transplant are available in the state now, he said.

Stating the difficulties MPs used to face in getting people from Bihar treated at AIIMS, Delhi, Kumar said, "Now the dream (of getting treated at Patna AIIMS) is going to be fulfilled. The people of the state will not be forced to go outside the state for treatment."

The All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Patna, where only some sections were operational, is now set to provide full-fledged healthcare services.

The state government will try to make Patna Medical College and Hospital a hospital of international repute, Kumar said, adding, there is a need to remodel the hospital afresh.

Facilities at Nalanda Medical College and Hospital here will be enhanced, the release said.

The chief minister said emphasis has also been given to primary health centres (PHCs) to improve healthcare facilities, including appointment of doctors, para-medical staff and provision for free medicines.

According to a government-conducted survey, the number of patients visiting a PHC increased from 1,500-2,000 per month in October 2006 to 10,500 at present, he said.

The percentage of institutional delivery has gone up from a meagre four per cent to 52 per cent, Kumar said, adding, the percentage of regular immunisation has also increased to 84 per cent from 16 per cent.

The chief minister today inaugurated and laid foundation stones of 113 various schemes of the state health department worth Rs 866 crore.
