Union Minister for Labour and Employment and Environment, Forest, and Climate Change, Mr. Bhupender Yadav, while addressing the ‘Jan Aushadhi Diwas 2023’ program being organized in Dwarka, Delhi, remarked under the leadership of Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi, more than 9,000 Jan Aushadhi Kendras have been opened across the country by the central government to make health facilities accessible to all people.
The public is relieved from the burden of expensive medications, according to the minister, because medications are offered at these centres at low rates. He added that the government also ensures that sanitary pads are available at these Jan Aushadhi Kendras at affordable prices, bearing in mind the convenience of women.
Mr. Bhupender Yadav further highlighted that the government is working on a target of increasing the number of Jan Aushadhi Kendras to 10,000 in the country by the end of the year.
