NHA and MoHFW to Host ‘Arogya Manthan’ Event in Delhi Celebrating Healthcare Milestones

The National Health Authority (NHA) and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) are coming together to host a two-day event called ‘Arogya Manthan’ in Delhi. This event, taking place on September 25th and 26th at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi, is designed to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB PM-JAY) and the second anniversary of the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM). Arogya Manthan 2023 will feature insightful discussions and deliberations on the challenges, trends, and best practices related to these two healthcare schemes.

Union Minister of Health Mansukh Mandaviya will deliver the keynote address at the closing session of Arogya Manthan 2023. Other notable figures such as Prof SP Singh Baghel, Minister of State (Health and FW), Dr VK Paul, Member (Health) of Niti Aayog, Sudhansh Pant, Secretary (Health and FW), and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Health Authority (NHA) will also participate in the event. Minister of State (Health and FW) will preside over the inaugural session, and Dr Bharati Pravin Pawar, Minister of State (Health and FW), will address the audience virtually during the same session.

Arogya Manthan will see active involvement from policymakers representing various States and Union Territories (UTs), national healthcare experts, academia, think tanks, industry professionals, and media representatives. Ayushman Bharat PM-JAY, launched on September 23, 2018, has made a significant impact by providing free hospitalizations worth Rs. 69,000 crore to 5.5 crore beneficiaries, ensuring better health for countless underprivileged families and shielding them from catastrophic healthcare expenses. The ABDM, initiated on September 17, 2021, is a forward-looking government program that aims to establish a digital platform connecting different players in the healthcare ecosystem. In the past two years, more than 45 crore Ayushman Bharat Health Accounts (ABHA) have been created, with over 30 crore health records linked to these accounts.

Both flagship healthcare initiatives are committed to offering accessible, available, affordable, and scalable healthcare to work towards achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in India. Arogya Manthan will feature various informative panel discussions and interactive sessions covering different aspects of AB PM-JAY and ABDM. These discussions will include topics such as Universal Health Coverage, Convergence, and Digital Health, along with sessions addressing the implementation of these two significant healthcare schemes.
