Provide adequate Siddha Medicine in TN Govt Hospitals and PHCs

This petition made change with 142 supporters!

More and more people are seeking healthcare through the Siddha Wings in Govt.Hospitals and Primary Health centres. Govt. of India Ministry of AYUSH has listed 350 drugs as Essential Drugs of Siddha. Not even 25% of medicines are available in Govt. Hospitals now. Unfortunately the budgetary allocation for purchase of Siddha medicine is so low that Siddha physicians are helpless in providing even the basic medicines for the common man. For a Centre which treats 1400 people per month the allocation is just Rs 8000 for siddha medicine. Still because the Govt PSU is not able to supply medicine even for this amount patients are suffeing.Through this we request  Tamil Nadu Govt to increase allocation for Siddha medicine, so that common man- poor people get basic health services.
