Imphal: Health minister Dr S. Ranjan Singh has said that coordination between public and private sector is required for a better health care system.
Ranjan was speaking at the foundation day celebration of Jivan Hospital, Kakching, on Wednesday.
The government is relentlessly working to improve health care system in the state. Many welfare health schemes have been launched at the central and state level. Schemes like PMJAY, CMHT, Chief Minister’s Health for All etc. may be mentioned, he said.
Grassroot health care system needs to be focussed as priority. Without improving primary health care system tertiary health care will be hardly improved, he added.

Nursing care to the patients is a unique thing which is highly necessary as health professionals. There has been a turning point in the health care system during the past few years. Information Technology, (IT) enabled service to the private and public sectors have become a new trend, he informed.
He said that the role played by the health staff during the Covid pandemic is commendable. The government is now prepared for any pandemic.
