Rajasthan invites private groups to run govt health centres

At a state cabinet meeting in Jodhpur, the Rajasthan government decided to invite private participation in healthcare services.

Voluntary organisations, religious trusts and private medical colleges can now take up the management of government health centres on contract.

"The scheme would be reviewed every three months," Parliamentary Affairs Minister Rajendra Singh Rathore told IANS.

To get a contract, organisations would have to furnish a bank guarantee of Rs.100,000. The contractor would have to provide the same services at the same prices as was being provided by the government, the minister added.
