He urged lecturers, assistant professors, associate professors and principals of colleges related to medical education to sit in OPD regularly. He said,
Prepare case studies of all the patients you see and actively encourage research in medical education.
CM Adityanath said under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Uttar Pradesh has significantly enhanced its healthcare services in the last 6.5 years.
In the period from 1947 to 2017, only 12 medical colleges were established in the state. Today, Uttar Pradesh has 65 medical colleges, of which many are functional, he said. While pointing out the operational AIIMS facilities in Rae Bareli and Gorakhpur, the Chief Minister said,
Today, along with allopathy, traditional medicine is also being promoted in the state.
In a commitment to provide prompt and efficient healthcare, efforts to minimise the response time of ambulance services 108 and 102 have shown positive results, he added.
He said that individuals who play caste card weaken both society and the country. CM Yogi said,
The deaths caused by encephalitis in the state before 2017 reveal such people’s true colours… Today, encephalitis is completely under control in Uttar Pradesh. Deaths due to encephalitis have decreased by 96 to 98 percent.

NDTV – Dettol have been working towards a clean and healthy India since 2014 via the Banega Swachh India initiative, which in its Season 10 is helmed by Campaign Ambassador Ayushmann Khurrana. The campaign aims to highlight the inter-dependency of humans and the environment, and of humans on one another with the focus on One Health, One Planet, One Future – Leaving No One Behind. It stresses on the need to take care of, and consider, everyone’s health in India – especially vulnerable communities – the LGBTQ population, indigenous people, India’s different tribes, ethnic and linguistic minorities, people with disabilities, migrants, geographically remote populations, gender and sexual minorities. In a world post COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign will continue to raise awareness on the same along with focussing on the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children, fight malnutrition, mental well-being, self-care, science and health, adolescent health & gender awareness. Along with the health of people, the campaign has realised the need to also take care of the health of the eco-system. Our environment is fragile due to human activity, which is not only over-exploiting available resources, but also generating immense pollution as a result of using and extracting those resources. The imbalance has also led to immense biodiversity loss that has caused one of the biggest threats to human survival – climate change. It has now been described as a “code red for humanity.” The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollution, waste management, plastic ban, manual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene. Banega Swasth India will also be taking forward the dream of Swasth Bharat, the campaign feels that 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 the country can become a Swasth or healthy India.
