This is the first time in India we are launching such a program. This will help the Gram Panchayats to fight Covid and non-communicable diseases. With this project, we aim at reaching out to the rural population with the right information and education on Covid-19 management to protect themselves. I seek the support from all the CEOs assembled here to ensure that this project will be successful in getting the rural population the available services from departments such as Health and Family Welfare and Women and Child Development. – Shri K S Eshwarappa, Minister, RDPR, Government of Karnataka at the launch of the Graama Panchayath Amrutha Arogya Abhiyaana
This is a very unique experiment that is launched in Karnataka, where we are distributing diagnostic kits to the Gram Panchayats. With the involvement of Panchayat Raj Institutions, at a very decentralized level, we can take up early action in order to promote preventive health. – Shri L K Atheeq,¬ Principal Secretary, RDPR, Government of Karnataka, at the launch of the Graama Panchayath Amrutha Arogya Abhiyaana
This GPAAA kit will help us to identify the cases like COVID or TB at their doorsteps, so that we will be able to further follow up those patients. – Mr. Bhoobalan, Zilla Panchayat CEO, Bagalkot
