Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being
Ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages
Achieve healthy lives and well-being for all at all ages by building a resilient health system through people-centred, evidence-based, equity-driven, inter-departmental and inter-sectoral collaborative approaches to guarantee preventive, promotive, diagnostic, curative, rehabilitative and palliative care across all levels of service provision and through the life course.
The state will adopt a mission mode to address the challenges in the health sector. A state-level task force has been constituted in the state to ensure inter-departmental and inter-sectoral coordination required for the accomplishment of the targets.
State health policy will be developed for improved health facilities and referral systems to deliver quality services.
It will also focus on trust-building through citizen's/community engagement by activating village health and nutrition day (VHND) across the state. Universal health coverage for the poor will be taken up as a priority by the state and all sectors will be encouraged to ensure health insurance as part of the employment contract.
Given the vast and complex nature of the health sector, the strategies for system strengthening and citizen's engagement are identified in the following eight sub-sectoral interventions for more focussed engagement:
Reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health.
Communicable diseases and other public health threats (HIV, Malaria, Tuberculosis, Kala Azar Filariasis and other neglected tropical diseases).
Addressing Noncommunicable diseases and mental health.
Mortality and injuries due to road traffic accidents etc.
Universal health coverage - ensuring universal health coverage including risk protection, access to quality and essential healthcare services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all.
Deaths & illness due to hazardous chemicals and air, water and soil pollution and contamination.
Measures to address tobacco control.
Enhancing effective health systems in all its dimensions (policy, infrastructure, access, quality) in order to ensure universal health coverage through enhanced health financing and improvements in human resources.
