‘Also coming up Rs 70 cr Centrally funded Homeopathic College, Ayurvedic College’:
Srinagar, Dec 22: In a noteworthy stride toward bolstering health education in Jammu and Kashmir, the district of Kathua has achieved a significant milestone with the establishment of a Nursing College. This development comes as part of the concerted efforts under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi to enhance healthcare infrastructure and educational opportunities in the region.
Kathua, already benefiting from various health-related facilities, including the recently inaugurated Centrally funded Government Medical College, has emerged as a hub for advancing medical services in the state. The district has also witnessed the inauguration of the first-ever state-of-the-art Tata Memorial Cancer care facility, reinforcing its commitment to comprehensive healthcare.
Additionally, the introduction of Jammu and Kashmir’s inaugural free Telemedicine service, “Doctor on Wheels,” has brought medical assistance to remote villages near the International Border. This innovative initiative ensures that healthcare reaches even the most inaccessible areas, addressing the medical needs of the population in remote regions.
The establishment of the Nursing College in Kathua further underscores the government’s dedication to fostering a robust healthcare ecosystem. This move not only expands educational opportunities for aspiring healthcare professionals but also contributes to the overall enhancement of the healthcare infrastructure in the region.
The collective impact of these initiatives reflects a proactive approach to improving health services and education, aligning with the vision to create a healthier and more resilient Jammu and Kashmir under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
