Over the months, the importance of healthcare has skyrocketed as all it took was a virus to bring the world to its knees. Several governments, over these months, have taken massive steps towards improving healthcare. One such attempt at improving healthcare in Tamil Nadu happens to be the Tamil Nadu Amma Mini Clinic Scheme 2021.
About the scheme
Under the implementation of the Tamil Nadu Amma Mini Clinic Scheme 2021, there would be around 2,000 mini-clinics that would be set up in the state to strengthen health infrastructure. The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister launched the scheme in December 2020 to empower healthcare in the South Indian state.
The main aim of the scheme is to bring about operational hospitals in areas that have a population of fewer than 30,000 people. This is to target those rural areas which function with healthcare deficits and hence end up being disastrous for the people living in such remote areas.
What would be the timing of the Tamil Nadu Amma Mini Clinics?
The timings within which the clinic will remain functional are as follows:
- 8 am to 12 noon
- 4 pm to 8 pm
Special features of the Tamil Nadu Amma Mini Clinic
Here are the special features under the Tamil Nadu Mini Clinic scheme
- Each mini-clinic in Tamil Nadu will have a doctor, nurse and medical staff to ensure medical procedures are undertaken with utmost care and expertise.
- The mini-clinics will be equipped with facilities to check the temperature, oxygen levels, blood pressure, haemoglobin levels, blood sugar level and even to conduct haemoglobin and urine tests.
- Constant care and protection against infectious diseases will be offered to the people at subsidized rates.
Through the pandemic, we have learned one thing for sure: vigilance and early intervention is the key to cure any disease. Tamil Nadu’s Amma Clinic has therefore proven to be effective in bringing down the Coronavirus cases in the rural areas of the state. To applaud the efforts of healthcare experts, the CM of the state was recorded saying, “This is a historic achievement. The government of Tamil Nadu is implementing Amma Mini Clinic project with the intention of creating a disease-free life for the people of Tamil Nadu state.”
Summing it up
People of Tamil Nadu have always been reputed to be ahead of the curve. With the implementation of the scheme, they again prove that their reputation precedes them. Healthcare has grown to be a pivotal aspect over the last year, and governments all around the world have acknowledged its existence.
Tamil Nadu, as a state, has taken due measures after having learned its lessons with the onset of the covid-19 pandemic. With the Amma Mini Clinic Scheme, more people can be involved, employment can be increased and more people get access to free healthcare and apt medical facilities.
The Amma Mini Clinic Scheme in Tamil Nadu is a groundbreaking initiative to reach out to rural areas and impart sound medical attention.
