Union Health Minister Dr Mansukh Mandaviya will lead a pledge for Organ Donation on September 16, 2023 at GIC Ground, Agra. Around 10,000 people are expected to take the pledge to donate organs in Agra.
The minister will also inaugurate a super specialty block at Sarojini Naidu Medical College, Agra, and an organ donation registry.
The Union Health Ministry said that to register to donate organs, the only requirements are the Aadhar number, and the Aadhar linked mobile number.
Dr Mandaviya will also lay the Foundation Stone for 23 Integrated Public Health Labs, and 87 Block Public Health Units in Agra on same day.
The ministry informed that this will be followed by a 'Seva Pakhwada' for saturation of essential health services which will run from September 17th to October 2nd, 2023.
The ministry further added that the core objective of the Sewa Pakhwada is to extend comprehensive healthcare coverage to every village and town, transcending geographical barriers and ensuring that no one is left behind.
According the ministry, this synergistic approach aims to saturate coverage of health services through its three components Ayushman - Apke Dwar 3.0, Ayushman Melas at Health and Wellness Centres (HWCs) and Community Health Centres (CHCs) and Ayushman Sabhas in every village and panchayat.
