Before 2005, Bihar’s health service was in disarray: Nitish Kumar
Addressing the program organized on the occasion, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said that in 2005 we got an opportunity to work. What was the situation in the field of health before that, you all know. The state’s health service was in disarray. In February 2006, we conducted our first survey, which found that only 39 patients reach the primary health centers every month for treatment.
‘Now in a month 10 thousand patients get treatment at primary health centers’
He said that then we appointed doctors, health workers to improve health services. Also, free medicine was also arranged. According to the 2018 report, on an average 10 thousand patients have started arriving at primary health centers across Bihar in a month. Today, Bihar’s health services have improved.
