Hyderabad: Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao suggested that the Medical and Health department should work more efficiently and scientifically as the government is taking measures to improve the public health.
The Chief Minister wanted the officials to find out which disease was prevalent in which area and take preventive measures accordingly. “One should be cautious about the seasonal diseases and people should be pre warned and necessary preventive steps to be notified.
Since the government is spending large funds and improving the facilities at the government hospitals, the medical and health department should work for the poor,” he said.

Ministers Laxma Reddy, T Harish Rao, Etela Rajender, MPs Kavita, G Sukhender Reddy, Chief Secretary SP Singh, Principal Secretaries Rajeshwar Tiwari, S Narsing Rao, Secretary Sandeep Sultania and MLA G Kishore participated.
“People should be told about the prevention of seasonal diseases like Swine-flu, sun stroke, Cholera, viral fevers. In certain areas there is filarial and awareness should be created among the people. Whatever is expected from the government one should do but also make people aware of these diseases.
The Health department should have an assessment on which area is facing with which type of problem. Some people have no habit of going to hospitals even if they are unwell, move such people to hospitals. Medical staff should also undergo training from time to time.
Prepare 100 Resource persons and impart training through them. Prepare district wise health profile,” the Chief Minister said.
