Following is a PTI report:

New Delhi, May 3 (PTI) Government will set up 275 nursing colleges to churn out 22,000 nurses every year in the hilly states as part of its drive to address the shortfall in human resources in the health sector.

Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said improving human resources in the health sector was his real aim over the next five years.

Along with the increase in the number of Post-Graduate medical seats, the government is planning a major boost for nursing education and para-medical staff by setting up 275 colleges in hilly and difficult states.

“These colleges will churn out 22,000 additional nurses every year,” Azad said at a function here.

The health minister said the government was also bringing out a mechanism through which the Centre would directly monitor the immunisation campaign being carried out by the state governments.

He said there was also a need to reign in the population growth.
