The Uttar Pradesh government has claimed that it broke the record of making one lakh Ayushman cards in one day, the highest number achieved by any state in the country.
The official X handle of the Uttar Pradesh government stated, “On 21st September 2023, 1.5 lakh Ayushman cards have been made in a single day across the country, out of which one lakh cards have been made in Uttar Pradesh alone.”
It was also mentioned that the state government is continuously working towards providing the benefits of medical facilities to every person. The proof of this work is that the state has performed best in the entire country in Ayushman Bharat Digital Health Mission.
The state will be honoured for this achievement by Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on September 26 during the two-day Arogya Manthan programme in New Delhi.
Official sources said that more than five lakh Ayushman Bharat cards had been made within just four days under the Ayushman Bhav campaign. They said that over 20 lakh Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA) IDs had been generated while footfall of more than 20 lakh had been registered at the Ayushman Bharat-Health and Wellness Centres and community health centres.
Under the Ayushman sabhas, gatherings in every village and panchayat will play a pivotal role in distributing Ayushman cards, generating ABHA IDs and raising awareness about vital health schemes and disease conditions such as non-communicable diseases, tuberculosis and sickle cell disease, as well as blood donation and organ donation drives.
Panchayats that successfully saturate the health schemes will earn the prestigious title of ‘Ayushman Gram Panchayat’ or ‘Ayushman Urban Ward’.
