Dinesh Trivedi moots the idea of electronic health card

New Delhi, Wed, 16 Sep 2009 ANI

New Delhi, Sept 16 (ANI): Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare Dinesh Trivedi put forward the idea of providing electronic health card to every child in the country.


He said this during the presentation of various awards for health care held here on Tuesday.


"Any child whether he is born at home, on road or in a nursing home, he should have an electronic health card. If a child in Barabanki has a health problem, then a doctor in New York or in New Delhi can guide him," said Trivedi.


Bollywood actor Shabana Azmi, who was also present on the occasion, said access to public health facilities is an important factor in ascertaining the human development index of a country.


"The number of pregnant women who die in India is equivalent to the number of people dying in 400 airplane crashes in one year. If 400 airplane crashes actually take place, the government would be changed. But, since poor women are dying, nobody is bothered," said Azmi.


The Government spends only one per cent of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on healthcare facilities, forcing millions of people to struggle to avail diagnosis, apt treatment and get medicines. (ANI)
