The Punjab Health and Family Welfare Minister Dr. Vijay Singla today announced holding of Health Melas in the state from April 18 as the state has a dual burden of both communicable and non-communicable diseases and many of these diseases can be prevented by early diagnosis, providing health education, timely referral and management. Besides, lack of awareness and poor health seeking behaviour have been found to be the major underlying causes of many diseases, said Dr. Singla.While informing about organising of these Health Melas, he further stated that early diagnosis and prevention can significantly reduce the rate of morbidity and preventable mortality. The melas would be held at the block level where information on various diseases and their preventive measures will be provided, along with other healthcare services.
