Surakshit Hum Surakshit Tum Abhiyaan
About the Program:
♦ The Surakshit Hum Surakshit Tum Abhiyaan was created to help district administrations provide home-care support to Covid-19 patients who are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms.
♦ It is part of the Aspirational Districts Collaborative, a special initiative in which local leaders, civil society, and volunteers collaborate with district administrations to address emerging problems across key focus areas of the Aspirational Districts Programme.
♦ It will be led by district magistrates in collaboration with over 1000 local non-governmental organisations.
♦ Over 1 lakh volunteers will be trained to connect with patients via inbound/outbound calls as part of the programme.
♦ The campaign is expected to play a critical role in district readiness for managing nearly 70% of Covid cases at home, reducing pressure on the health system, and preventing the spread of fear among the public.
♦ The campaign will also build the capacity of citizens to properly use the oxygen concentrators provided to these districts.
♦ Based on Ministry of Health and Family Welfare guidelines, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) will mobilise local volunteers to provide home-care assistance to those affected.
