Afsar Usmani addressing the gathering
Latur: The Movement for Peace and Justice, Maharashtra has launched its one month long “Health for all” campaign with a view to strengthen the public health infrastructure in the state. While addressing a programme at Latur, MPJ State President, Muhammad Siraj told the gatherings that, our constitution mandates health as our basic right. But, people are not getting this right due to various reasons. There is a lack of awareness among us regarding such health facilities provisioned under various national and international health policies and programmes. Many of us are not aware of the Primary health services available to the people just stepping out of the home, he added.   

He informed people attending the programme that, the State government has formulated three tier
health infrastructures in the state. At lowest level, government has established Primary Health Centres and Sub-Centres in Rural areas, while in urban areas there are community health centres, municipal dispensaries, maternity homes and health posts. These health institution falls under primary health services. In Secondary Health Services, there are District, Sub-District, and Rural Hospitals, where the specialty services are provided at various hospitals.

The third level of health services is called tertiary Care Services. In tertiary care services, government makes available the Super Specialty Services to the people and these hospitals are located in big cities, where services like, Cardiology, Cardiovascular and cardiothoracic surgeries, Nephrology & Urology, Oncology and Chemotherapy etc; are provided to the people.


The Secretary General of the MPJ Afsar Usmani requested people to come forward to strengthen the existing health infrastructure, especially the primary health services in the state.
