Introduction to Health Care Projects Instituted by the Government of India




Ayushman Bharat, PMMVY, ASHA


This paper examines three pivotal Healthcare Schemes in India – Ayushman Bharat, Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana (PMMVY), and the Accredited Social Health Activist (ASHA) program. While Ayushman Bharat strives to broaden healthcare access, PMMVY addresses maternal health and ASHA facilitates community healthcare. The paper discusses the challenges faced by these schemes, including awareness gaps, administrative complexities, and resource constraints. These initiatives underscore the government's commitment to well-being, but their success hinges on collaborative efforts to overcome obstacles and create a healthier, more equitable society.
