Madhya Pradesh: How merger of Public Health & Family Welfare Department and Medical Education Department benefit?

Public Health and Family Welfare Department and Medical Education Department will be merged and reconstituted as "Public Health and Medical Education Department". Medical colleges will be able to focus on critical/specialized treatment and medical education instead of providing routine medical services.

Effective monitoring of infant mortality and maternal mortality will be easier. Best practices of medical colleges can be used in health centres. It will become easier to affiliate district hospitals with medical colleges. There will be facility in better implementation and control of health policy and departmental schemes. The merger of both the departments was recommended in the roadmap of Atmanirbhar Madhya Pradesh.

The Cabinet approved amendment in the provisions of Madhya Pradesh Medical University Act, 2011. Presently the University of Medical Sciences offers courses in Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Ayurveda, Unani, Homeopathy, Naturopathy etc.
