Ayushman Bharat, the ambitious project of the Narendra Modi government has been receiving accolades across the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General has expressed happiness that India’s ambitious Ayushman Bharat scheme has provided free care to almost 7 lakh people in its first 100 days.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Direct-General, WHO praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Health Minister J P Nadda for their visionary leadership which helped around seven lakh people avail benefits of the healthcare scheme Ayushman Bharat in the first 100 days of its launch.

“In its first 100 days, #India’s ambitious #AyushmanBharat scheme has provided free care for almost 700,000 people. I applaud Prime Minister @narendramodi and Health Minister @JPNadda for their visionary leadership for #HealthForAll (sic), ” Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus tweeted.

In the past, Ghebreyesus had also praised the Ayushman Bharat-Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana, which aims to provide insurance cover of Rs five lakh per annum to 50 crore poor people and had called it a “great commitment”.

Ayushman Bharat will be the world’s largest state-sponsored welfare scheme in the world, with aims to provide health insurance coverage to more than 10 crore poor families in the country. As per the latest Socio-Economic Caste Census (SECC) data, 8.03 crore rural households and another 2.33 crore urban households will be covered under this scheme.

In this span of the first 100 days of its launch, over 6,95,310 patients have been treated in various empanelled private and public hospitals across India. Around 5.1 lakh claims have been availed of the scheme, for which payment has been released. Currently, around 16000 government, as well as private hospitals, are amongst the enlisted hospitals, which are also expected to increase with time.

We had earlier reported that the World Health Organisation recently had praised the present government for its efforts to curb air pollution through one of its flagship schemes of Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana, which aims to safeguard the health of women and children by providing them with clean cooking fuel. The WHO had also reported that the Swachh Bharat Grameen mission has been able to prevent over 3 lakh deaths due to sanitation-related infectious diseases during 2014 and 2018.
