New Delhi:  The Delhi government today said that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has approved a proposal in which the Delhi State Health Mission (DSHM) will manage and set up 1,000 mohalla clinics in the city.

Besides, the chief minister also allowed Rogi Kalyan Samitis (RKS) to hire short-term manpower for hospitals to fill the gaps in health services, it said.

"This will help hospitals have adequate number of staff for services as and when required," an official said.

Mr Kejriwal today held a review meeting of the DSHM along with Health Minister Satyendar Jain, Social Welfare Minister Rajendar Pal Gautam and senior officers.

"In the meeting, the chief minister approved the proposal to entrust the mission with the responsibility of management and setting up of 1,000 Aam Aadmi Mohalla Clinics," the government said in a statement.

There are about 160 mohalla clinics aimed at providing free primary health care to city residents closer to home. The scheme is a flagship project of the AAP government.

The government has a target of setting up 1,000 such clinics across the national capital.
