Healthcare :: 36 new hospitals on the anvil in Delhi

Delhi government plans to construct 36 new hospitals to strengthen the primary health services in the capital.

Work on seven of these hospitals will begin during 2007-08, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said inaugurating a new campus of the Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences (IHBAS) in Dilshad Garden in East Delhi.

“This would help in strengthening and expansion of multi-disciplinary hospitals to make secondary and tertiary healthcare accessible to common man,” she said.

The Chief Minister also said a multidisciplinary approach and emphasis on socio-cultural factors has helped IHBAS to mitigate to some extent the stigma associated with mental disorders.

Health Minister Yoganand Shastri, MLA Veer Singh Dhingan and other senior officials were also present on the occasion.
