Brinder rault - 15-mars-2019 10:40:57

  The government of India has launched a healthcare scheme called «  Ayushman Bharat  » for the benefit to provide free healthcare services to the poor.   It is being billed as the world’s largest free healthcare scheme in just over five months of launch.   The aim of the government is to provide healthcare to over 50 crore beneficiaries. Some of the perks being - free health insurance upto INR 5 lakh per family for secondary and tertiary hospitalisation (to nearly 40% of the population) —more than 100 million poor and vulnerable families   At present, 2.2 crore people have been issued e-cards and nearly 14 lakh people have been treated.   Another important drive initiated by the Central government is the «  Swacch Bharat Abhiyan  » - the Clean India Drive .   Over 9.23 crore toilets have been constructed which has increased the coverage of toilets from 39% in October 2014 to 98.9 per cent in 30 states and Union Territories and as per reports are now open defecation free .   Statistics show that constructions and access to toilets have reported a behavioural change in their usage as well – in a survey conducted by an independent agency under the World Bank support to Swachh Bharat Mission, 93.4 percent of rural households in India who have access to a toilet, do indeed use it.

  The 25 th edition of Indian Medical Fair took place in New Delhi from the 21 st of February to the 23 rd of February 2019. This event gathers actors of the medical sector from India and abroad. Exhibitions and conferences were happening. This year, the themes of the talks were exploring the following subjects: the Ayushman Bharat, the future of Healthcare, the Medical Devices and Equipments market, the consumerization of Health and the question of medical entrepreneurship.     One would also notice the growing interest for the senior care and the market of senior healthcare services. Indeed, a special corner, named “Rehaindia” was dedicated to the actors of the senior care where one could meet companies offering medical devices for elderly, gymnastic tools, nutritionist and physiotherapists.       In 2018, the number of seniors in India stood at 116 million people, or 9% of the population. Seniors are more present in rural areas (77 million) than in urban areas (39 million). By 2025, the number of elderly people in India is expected to be 158 million (higher than the population of Russia), or 11% of the population. Between 2010 and 2050 the number of seniors will have tripled and life expectancy will have increased from 67.5 years to 79.5 years.   These different points make it possible to affirm that the silver economy is a buoyant market in India. According to a report published by CII [1] , the Asia-Pacific region is the one whose service market for seniors will increase the most. The strongest growth to come will be in the following sectors:   - Public institutions interest and policies   - Home healthcare services   - Specific medical devices for the elderly   The home healthcare sector is the main market today in terms of demands and offer. It corresponds to the expectations of the Indian society which is to grow old at home and is in phase with the evolutions of the Indian medical sector which tends to use the technology and the mobile applications to make benefit of services of health care at home.   The real estate players are also surfing on the wave. One could observe the emergence of community centres and retirements homes for senior such as Portea, Healthcare at Home (Dabur), Max Healthcare (Max Home), India Home Healthcare, Care24.   With such growing interest, huge opportunities will arise. Infrastructures will be needed, medical devices too, and trained professional to assist the elderly (indeed, it is now estimated that the number of workers in the senior services sector is 4.5 million and could reach 10 million in 2025).   [1] CII, Senior Care industry Report India 2018

  This healthcare initiative, launched by the Central Government of India in September 2018 has the following objectives:   Creation of health and wellness centres all over India : With an allocation of USD 185 million, these centres will provide essential drugs and diagnostics services free of cost. The centres are also designed to provide comprehensive health care, including treatment and medication for non-communicable diseases as well as maternal and child health services.

French company Suez helps south Delhi colony get drinking water from taps.

In a first, south Delhi colony gets drinking water from taps The inauguration of the scheme saw Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, Malviya Nagar MLA Somnath Bharti and Mishra underline the initiative’s importance in bringing Delhi closer to developed countries. On Sunday afternoon, a residential colony in south Delhi’s Malviya Nagar became the first area in the capital to get 24×7 access to potable water from taps. The flagship project is aimed at benefitting 1,900 people in the area and will be implemented in other parts of Delhi soon. Done under a public-private partnership with French company Suez, the scheme was implemented by isolating Navjeevan Vihar hydraulically and following the “calculation of losses”, Delhi Jal Board (DJB) officials said. The supply of potable water at the colony, officials said, is from the Malviya Nagar underground reservoir command area, which provides water to around 4.5 lakh people in south Delhi.   “The project will help 340 families. Consumers will be able to get drinking water directly through taps by closing the inlet of the overhead tanks. As part of the project, a leak detection mechanism has also been put in place, and losses at household levels, checked,” said DJB chairperson Kapil Mishra. DJB officials said that three exercises had to be conducted in order to ensure uninterrupted high-quality water supply. “House service connection levels needed to be changed, overhead and underground tanks needed to be bypassed and a high-end leakage detection system had to be formulated,” a senior DJB official said. Mishra added, “This initiative will help consumers save water from leakages and overflow. It would also help people save money as water bills will get less expensive. It will also end people’s dependency on water purifiers. No water pumps will also be required and hence power consumption will be reduced.” The inauguration of the scheme saw Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, Malviya Nagar MLA Somnath Bharti and Mishra underline the initiative’s importance in bringing Delhi closer to developed countries. Stating that while the pilot project might look like a “small step”, Mishra said the scheme will be replicated in other parts of the capital, which has already been divided into 1,010 units. For residents, it is a dream come true. “In this society, we have seen a lot — from laying down of water pipes to bad performance of overhead tanks and shortage of water and milk. Having gone through that, to get water supply 24×7 seems like a dream. But it has happened,” said J Arora, who has been living at Navjeevan Vihar for more than two decades.   Source:  http://bit.ly/2ms0DW1
