Health Minister pledges to expand health services to marginalized communities

In a commitment to healthcare equity, Health Minister Samanta Lal Sen announced on Sunday his plans to extend vital health services to marginalized communities.

This initiative is a significant step towards transforming the medical experience for underprivileged citizens.

During a press interaction following his office assumption at the Secretariat, the health minister emphasized his dedication to this cause. ÒI will try my level best to ensure that healthcare reaches the marginalized. Our goal is to prevent situations where people are compelled to receive medical treatment on hospital floors in Dhaka,Ó he stated, reports UNB.

The minister outlined a hands-on approach to understanding and addressing the challenges faced in hospitals. ÒI plan to personally visit all hospitals, assess the issues firsthand, and develop action plans. I want an open-door policy in my ministry, inviting feedback and suggestions from both internal staff and the public, without any formalities or protocol barriers,Ó he elaborated.

Addressing the persistent issue of corruption within the ministry, Sen declared a zero-tolerance stance. ÒCorruption hinders our progress and will not be tolerated. We must root it out to ensure efficient and fair healthcare delivery,Ó he asserted.

He also acknowledged the reluctance among physicians for rural postings. ÒUnderstanding and addressing the reasons behind this reluctance is crucial. We will engage in dialogues with the physicians and consider various factors before implementing solutions,Ó he added.
