The Delhi government is planning to open 100 mohalla (neighbourhood) clinics this month. The clinics will be the people's first point of contact with the healthcare system and will help decongest hospitals. The first one was launched as a pilot project in July last year at the Punjabi relief camp in West Delhi's Peeragarhi. Housed in a pre-fabricated cabin, the small and compact clinic cost Rs 20 lakh. It is open from 7 am to 7 pm and has two doctors on shift duty, a nurse, a pharmacist and a lab technician.  (Watch: Mohalla Clinics - Health Within Reach)
