Health of Indore’ is the world’s largest preventive health care survey conducted in any single city. Now preventive health care tests will be conducted for the youth of Madhya Pradesh.

If necessary, doctors’ consultation and guidance will be given to improve lifestyle.

In praise of the campaign, Chief Minister Dr. Mohan Yadav said that spiritual progress is possible only when one is healthy. Earlier, under the Health of Indore campaign, tests of 2.5 lakh people in the city were conducted, out of which about half the population may become victims of serious diseases. In this context, a program was held in the presence of the then Union Health Minister Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya in January 2024 and the Minister had talked then about taking Indore’s preventive health care model across the country. Urban Administration Development Minister Shri Kailash Vijayvargiya, who was present in the program, praised the campaign and emphasized staying healthy.

Speaking on the occasion, MP Shri Shankar Lalwani said that to keep the youth of Madhya Pradesh healthy, preventive health care tests will be conducted across the state and the campaign is starting from Indore. Dr. Vineeta Kothari said that considering the results of the survey conducted in Indore, there is a need to take immediate action, especially on the health parameters of the youth. Therefore, now Healthy Madhya Pradesh Initiative has been launched. Out of 30 thousand of these 2.5 lakh people, every fourth youth was found to be pre-diabetic. Also, thyroid problem was found in 7.34 percent of youth. Creatinine level of about two percent of people was found to be high.
