Poor health facilities in Himachal

Even after 60 years of independence Himachal is poor in providing health facilities to people of Himachal Pradesh.State has only one hospital of PGI level, IGMC Shimla which can cater to the needs of only few parts of Himachal. People of areas like Chamba,Kangra,Mandi,Lahaul,Kullu,Bilaspur has to rush PGI Chandigarh in case of emergency or to avail modern health facilities.In some of the cases this time lag in getting medical treatment in time results in loss of valuable human life.One example of which we saw few days back when a child died reaching Chandigarh who was earlier referred to Shimla because regional centers did not have the treatment for acute diarrhea and he could not reach IGMC too because of show of strength by our political leaders who blocked all roads to life for child.

Swami Vivekanand Medical College and Hospital Palampur which was supposed to be mini PGI of Himachal seems to be victim of bad politics .Shanta Kumar then chief minister of Himachal Pradesh has put the foundation stone for this project in November 1992.After his dismissal there is no significant development in the project.However due to efforts of Shanta Kumar KayaKalp has started functioning.

Most of Distt./zonal/Primary health centers Lack in cleanliness,hygienic conditions and shortage of staff etc.Himachal today need three big health institutions each catering four distt. of state with all modern health facilities to treat Psychiatric diseases,Heart problems,Cancer and Other Major surgeries.
