The department of health in Telangana state is planning to launch ‘LCD Kit’ Scheme, using which a team of doctors will be employed at all major government hospitals to conduct regular screening of people from the rural areas and keep track of their health conditions from time to time.

As part of this, the state government is initially planning to launch this new LCD Kit at Janagaon district hospital under Warangal division. While revealing this, Health Minister Dr. C. Laxma Reddy said, “Very soon the poor people in the state will get to access LCD Kit using which the people in the rural areas can screen their health conditions on a regular basis, wherein a team of doctors would be employed to screen the people in the rural areas about their health and would be kept a separate record for their healthcare in the future,” said the Minister.

Recently the minister also launched a wellness centre for government employees and journalists at the government maternity hospital and said that people living in the rural areas do not go for regular health check-ups and many a time they get to know about a disease in advanced stage leaving no scope for cure or the expense become out of their reach.

This initiative would help in identifying disease at initial stage and get them cured, he observed.

The Health minister further reiterated that the state government is giving highest priority to health sector and all the government hospitals in the state have been upgraded both infrastructurally and human resources wise. “We are equipping all the government hospitals with most modern equipments and advanced healthcare facilities. As part of this we have launched 40 advanced dialysis centres across all the district hospitals in the state. Very soon we will add some more dialysis centres at the rural hospitals to enable easy accessibility of renal care in the rural areas”, said the Minister.

As already the launch of KCR Kits scheme has become a big hit among the pregnant women, wherein majority of them are now approaching the government hospitals for deliveries and in fact it has increased the institutional deliveries from 20 per cent to 60 per cent.
