A Mobile Clinic Haat Bazaar in Bastar
Imagine accessing healthcare during a raging pandemic in a remote Maoist-hit area in Bastar. Enter – a mobile clinic that ensures no one is left out and overcomes the access to facilities in the hinterland that have always been a challenge due to geographical complexities and Maoist activities. Chhattisgarh government’s Mukhymantri Haat Bazaar Clinic Yojna is ensuring that healthcare reaches the remotest villages. The state government-led initiative is based on the “principles of development, trust and security” to ensure that people in the interior areas of Bastar can get basic services such as medical, education and employment, among others. With the usage of mobile clinics of ‘Mukhyamantri Haat-Bazaar Clinic Yojna’ – medical camps have also begun in the Haat Bazaars of the interior areas, where the villagers are getting the facility of free examination, treatment and medicines.
