In spite of the advancement in universal healthcare and achieving impressive Human Development Indicators, the State is gearing up to address second generation health care issues. The demands on Government healthcare systems far exceed its capacity.
Mission AARDRAM aims at creating "People Friendly" Health Delivery System in the state. The approach will be need based and aims at treating every patient with ‘dignity'. Through the state of the art investigation and intervention protocols it envisages transforming all Primary Health Centers into Family Health Centres as a first level Health delivery point. The mission envisages ensuring quality care at Primary Health Centres. All high footfall hospitals will be transformed to patient friendly Out Patient service providers. The services include web based appointment system, virtual queues, patient reception at registration centres, waiting rooms with wi-fi facilities and so on.


The Government is committed to people-friendly healthcare for delivering the public sector health care system to make quality specialist health care facilities accessible to the poorest of the poor.

  • Reform out-patient management procedures with state-of-the-art facilities
  • Facilitate with hygienic and spacious wards, rooms, beds and toilets

The Government aims at making public health care institutions especially government hospitals at primary, secondary and tertiary care sector, people friendly by improving their basic infrastructure. The focus would be on ensuring availability of medical check-up and other investigations at the out-patient and in-patient wings.
