Essential Drugs and Universal Precaution

Under this program, the Department ensures its hospitals and health centers an adequate supply of essential drugs and other necessities for the practice of universal precaution. This program ensures that even the small health centers and clinics, including those located in the remote regions, are well equipped to deal with common health problems at the local level without having to refer every case to the outside hospitals, which are quite often located far away from the settlement.
