Ayushman Bhav Campaign

More than five lakh Ayushman Bharat beneficiary cards have been made within just four days under the Ayushman Bhav campaign, Union Health Secretary Sudhansh Pant said on Thursday.

He further said that over 20 lakh Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA) IDs have been generated while footfall of more than 20 lakh have been registered at the Ayushman Bharat-Health and Wellness Centres and Community Health Centres.

The three components of the Ayushman Bhav campaign -- Ayushman Apke Dwar 3.0, Ayushman Melas at Health and Wellness Centres and Community Health Clinics, and Ayushman Sabhas in every village and panchayat -- will substantially expedite the access to healthcare services at the grassroot levels.

Under the Ayushman Sabhas, gatherings in every village and panchayat will play a pivotal role in distributing Ayushman cards, generating ABHA IDs and raising awareness about vital health schemes and disease conditions such as non-communicable diseases, tuberculosis and sickle cell disease, as well as blood donation and organ donation drives.

Panchayats that successfully saturate the health schemes will earn the prestigious title of 'Ayushman Gram Panchayat' or 'Ayushman Urban Ward'.
