*Need to create awareness against Disparity and Atrocity: Health & Medical Education Minister Dr.K.Sudhakar*
*Our goal is to bring mortality rate to zero*
*Minister Inaugurates Pink Booth*
*Bengaluru – March 8, 2021*: There is a need to create awareness among the people against disparity and atrocity towards women says Health & Medical Education Minister Dr.K.Sudhakar. He was speaking at inauguration of pink booth at C.V.Raman hospital here on Monday.
Women are excelling in all fields. They have a greater contribution in India’s freedom struggle as well. But till today we have not realised the dream of completely removing the disparity against women. There still cases of atrocity and exploitation of women. It is necessary to create awareness on gender equality and women rights. Women also need to be aware of the women friendly laws. He said.
As said by Dr.B.R Ambedkar, any society’s progress should be evaluated by the progress of women in that society. Women plays an important role in the family as a mother, as a sister, as a wife and as a daughter, said Dr.Sudhakar.
We have target to achieve zero mortality rate in new born and mothers. We need to concentrate more on North Karnataka in this. There are schemes like Matru Vandana, Suraksha etc. Asha Karyakartas working in health department have a major role in taking the health services to remote areas. Said the Minister.
All women staffed Pink booth has been inaugurated on International women’s day. We have already started to give Covid vaccines at PHCs and will deliver 1 lakh vaccines per day soon, said the Minister.
