    The Health Minister of Telangana State, T Harish Rao, has suggested expanding the distribution of KCR Nutrition Kits to all constituency centres across the State. The kits aim to help combat anemia among pregnant women and promote the well-being of unborn babies. At present, the distribution of the kits is carried out in nine districts of Telangana, and the minister wants to extend this to all Assembly Constituency Centres in the remaining 24 districts. The objective is to provide these kits to approximately 6.84 lakh pregnant women across the State. The minister believes that this programme can yield favourable results, building upon the successful implementation of the existing KCR kit scheme in the State.

    During a video conference meeting held on Tuesday, the Health Minister conducted a comprehensive review of various issues alongside district collectors, health, and engineering department officials. He sought updates on the progress of health centre construction projects across various districts and urged Collectors to promptly allocate suitable sites for constructing these centres and expedite the tender process. He emphasised the paramount importance of utilising village dispensaries to deliver high-quality medical services at the grassroots level.

    The Health Minister commended the triumphant implementation of a large-scale eye examination programme, with over 1.5 crore people in the State undergoing eye examinations and 38,54,000 individuals receiving prescription glasses, including reading glasses. He expressed heartfelt gratitude to the officers, doctors, medical staff, and the public for their unwavering cooperation. As most of the screening activities have been completed, he suggested that doctors, staff nurses, and ANMs involved in the eye camps be relieved of their duties, while the remaining staff continue the camps with renewed enthusiasm.

    In light of the intense summer season, Collectors were advised to issue instructions for people to take necessary precautions against sunburn and ensure the provision of facilities such as shade and drinking water in workplaces.
