Bhupesh Baghel announces healthcare, nutrition schemes for Chhattisgarh tribals
By FirstPost 20-Jun-2019
The announcement comes in the wake of the deaths of over 100 children in Bihar's Muzaffarpur district due to acute encephalitis syndrome (AES).
Baghel said the state government would be launching two new schemes for tribals related to malnutrition and healthcare facilities. These schemes will play a pivotal role in improving the health status of tribals, he said.
The state government will provide nutritious food to the forest dwellers to combat malnutrition and, as part of another scheme, tribals will have mobile healthcare facilities in weekly markets.
These schemes will soon be launched from Bastar region as a "pilot project". Bastar is considered to be the worst Naxal-affected region in Chhattisgarh. "Bastar region has the highest malnutrition level across Chhattisgarh. We have inherited this problem and are committed to completely eradicate it," Baghel said.
