Meanwhile, “Swachhta Pakhwada” (cleanliness fortnight) was started in civil hospitals, primary health centres, community health centres as well as sub-centres of the state from June 15 to June 30. On the occasion, Vij digitally interacted with all civil surgeons of the state and gave necessary instructions to them. The minister said, “we have started Swachhta Pakhwada today but hygiene and cleanliness should be a consistent way of life”.

We are just out of the second wave of COVID-19, so we have decided to clean all the PHCs, CHCs and hospitals, he said.

NDTV – Dettol Banega Swasth India campaign is an extension of the five-year-old Banega Swachh India initiative helmed by Campaign Ambassador Amitabh Bachchan. It aims to spread awareness about critical health issues facing the country. In wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (WaterSanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign highlights the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children to prevent maternal and child mortality, fight malnutrition, stunting, wasting, anaemia and disease prevention through vaccines. Importance of programmes like Public Distribution System (PDS), Mid-day Meal Scheme, POSHAN Abhiyan and the role of Aganwadis and ASHA workers are also covered. Only a Swachh or clean India where toilets are used and open defecation free (ODF) status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and become a Swasth or healthy India. The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollutionwaste managementplastic banmanual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene
