Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY) UPSC NOTE

 Why in News

  • At AIIMS Madurai, a project that has caused a further embittering of relations between the central and State governments, there are persistent complaints of inadequate infrastructure, facilities, and manpower constraints.

  • A ‘prestige’ project for the Centre, Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for construction at Thoppur, Madurai, in January 2019

  • From 2021, undeterred by the lack of something as basic as a building, the administration invited applications from students. 

Why in News

  • The construction work is still not complete, and not one, but three batches of undergraduate students have been accommodated at the Government Medical College and Hospital, in nearby Ramanathapuram district. 

  • Last week, these students went on protest, stating that there was a ravine-like gulf between what was expected of an AIIMS institution and their experience of it in Madurai — in terms of infrastructure, but also exposure to patients.

Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY)

  • PMSSY was announced in 2003 with objectives of correcting regional imbalances in the availability of affordable/reliable tertiary healthcare services and also to augment facilities for quality medical education in the country.

  • Nodal Ministry: Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

  • Two Components:

    • Setting up of AIIMS like institutions.

    • Upgradation of government medical colleges in various states.

Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY)

  • The project cost for upgradation of each medical college institution is shared by the Centre and the state.

  • It was in 2006 that the PMSSY got off the ground and a total of six AIIMS-like medical institutions were created in the country. 

  • Currently, there are 20 AIIMS institutions with functional medical colleges and three are under development.
