Kerala plans `Health Vision 2025' document

Our Bureau

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The State Government proposes to come out with a Vision 2025 document that deals with the correctives required for being able to meet challenges the health sector may throw up over the next 20 years.

The Health Minister, Mr K. K. Ramachandran, announced this while inaugurating a conference on paediatric nephrology conducted for the benefit of practitioners in the Government Sree Avittam Tirunal (SAT) Hospital here. The Indian Paediatric Academy organised the seminar as part of its nationwide action plan.

Though the State has been able to outperform its counterparts on general health parameters, it finds itself now faced with the many vicissitudes typically associated with the sector in developed countries. This, the Minister, will call for heightened level of awareness from the people about the issues at hand and the challenges ahead.
