Haryana topped the health sector ranking with one very impactful project. This is a sharp improvement in Haryana’s standing in health sector. In 2019 the state was ranked at the fourth position. Haryana shares the honour of topping the Health sectoral ranking along with West Bengal that also implemented a very impactful project. Despite eight projects Karnataka could not achieve the top spot due to low weightage of its projects.

There have been a lot of misconception among the people regarding Covid-19. A lot of people have suffered due to wrong treatment and the cases have spread in several parts of the country due to wrong conception about the control of the virus. Health Department of Haryana realised these challenges quite early and set up integrated Covid-19 helpline to handling both Covid related and non-Covid related queries and problems in a scientific manner. The helpline worked 24×7. Police control room and disaster management control room has also been integrated through Covid-19 helpline to provide the relief and assistance to needy people in pandemic situation.

An impressive feature of Haryana’s Covid-19 helpline is that it also provides Tele-Medicine/Consultation services. Various specialist doctors have been empanelled for this purpose.
