NDMC launched a new health scheme Stri Swasthya Suraksha Yojna for women
North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) launched a new health scheme Stri Swasthya Suraksha Yojna for women on 6 March 2014. The Scheme aims to bring services closer for those living in rural areas and unauthorized colonies.
Under the scheme, health camps and mass awareness drives will be held in various areas of north Delhi. The medical services will be provided through various nodal centres, hospitals and mobile dispensaries marked for the programme.
The scheme was launched due to many women suffering from various health ailments either out of poverty or for the lack of medical assistance. Under the scheme, these women will be examined at the camps and health centres. During the health camps, screenings will be done for different kinds of cancers, anaemia and malnutrition among others.
