Rural health schemes benefits tribals in Tripura

Agartala, Mar 7 (ANI): The implementation of various schemes in Tripura under the National Rural Health Scheme has given a reason to smile to the locals. Various health schemes under the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) are being implemented with an aim to bring down the Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) and Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR).

“NRHM can play a very important role in tribal areas where it is still difficult to reach medical services due to inaccessibility,” said L Darlong, Mission Director of NRHM, Tripura.

The schemes are not only trying to create an increased health awareness among the poor, but also to increase the manpower of the health department in the state.

New well equipped hospitals and health centers are also being constructed in the remote of the regions to provide instant aid to the people. Further, to spread awareness, tribals are being educated through puppet shows, road shows and folk songs.
