Delhi‘s Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia on Monday inaugurated a health clinic at a government school located in Moti Bagh, Delhi. Health clinics at Delhi government schools will be set up under the state government’s project ‘Aam Aadmi School Clinics‘ which is in line with ‘mohalla clinics’ projects. The health clinics at Delhi schools will help students to stay fit both mentally and physically.

Students will get the counselling services and the doctors and staff at the clinic will focus on ensuring mental well-being of the students. Delhi’s Health Minister Satyendra Jain applauded the move of the government and shared on social media writing: “A first-of-a-kind project, Aam Aadmi School Clinics have been started in 20 Delhi govt. schools. An extension of the mohalla clinics, the AASC will have a psychologist along with the doctor to examine & look over the mental and physical well-being of the students.”

Health clinics will ensure that every child in school gets a full body check up twice in a year. Each school health clinic will be staffed with one “School Health Clinic Assistant” or nurse, one psychologist, and one multi-task worker. One doctor will be available for every five clinics, and will visit each once a week.

A PTI report quoted Manish Sisodia, “I have seen schools in various countries, this concept is not there anywhere. Besides providing routine health check-ups to students, the clinics will also offer counselling services to address issues related to the mental well-being of children. Every six months, the students will undergo a health check up.”
