New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday inaugurated Infosys Foundation Vishram Sadan at the National Cancer Institute, Jhajjar campus of AIIMS via video conference.
This Vishram Sadan, built in the National Cancer Institute, will reduce the worries of patients and their relatives, the PM said.
The Prime Minister praised Infosys Foundation for constructing the building of Vishram Sadan and AIIMS Jhajjar for providing the land, electricity and water. He expressed his gratitude to the AIIMS management and Sudha Murthy’s team for this service.
Citing Ayushman Bharat – PMJAY as an example, he noted that India’s corporate sector, private sector and social organisations have continuously contributed to strengthening the health services of the country.
The Prime Minister said when a patient gets free treatment under the Ayushman Bharat scheme, an act of service is accomplished. It is this service motive that has made the government take steps to reduce the prices of about 400 cancer medicines, he added.
