    The Health Minister of Hyderabad, T Harish Rao, held a meeting to discuss government health programs and set a goal for Telangana to become a leader in all health indicators. He emphasized the importance of reducing the number of caesarean sections in hospitals and ensuring the delivery of high-quality medical services. Medical officers were reminded to monitor patients’ health conditions after initial treatment, and referrals to hospitals beyond primary healthcare centres should only be made when necessary. The minister proposed extending the operating hours of Basti Dawakhanas, displaying clinic timings and services offered and promoting the toll-free helpline number Telemanas-14416 for individuals experiencing mental health problems.

    Regarding maternal healthcare, the minister directed medical staff to conduct proper ANC check-ups and increase the number of deliveries in government hospitals while encouraging normal deliveries. Gynecologist-wise examinations for C-sections will be conducted in government hospitals. DMHOs and Deputy DMHOs were also instructed to address the concern of higher caesarean section rates in private hospitals and implement measures to reduce them. The minister underscored the importance of raising awareness about palliative services and the Arogya Mahila programme for comprehensive women’s healthcare, emphasizing the need to provide complete medical services every Tuesday.
