Director Health Services Kashmir, Dr Mushtaq Ahmad Rather today visited Chandawadi and Pahalgam to take review of health care arrangements ahead of Amarnath Yatra 2022.

During the visit, he was accompanied by CMO Anantnag, BMO, Yatra Officer DHSK and team besides other concerned officers of the health department.

The director reviewed health care arrangements and preparedness and directed for speedy execution of pending works before the Yatra commencement.

Dr MA Rather interacted with officers and directed them to put in place all the arrangements before the commencement of Yatra and there should be no laxity in providing basic health care facilities to yatris.

He further directed them that all the logistics should be put in place well in advance. The director directed the concerned officers to keep all the required drugs and necessary machinery equipment well in time so that the pilgrims do not face any kind of difficulty.

Pertinently, DHSK has trained doctors and paramedic staff at the Regional Institute of Health &Family Welfare (RIHFW), Dhobiwan under 'Training of Trainers’ program in High Altitude Medicine ahead of the Amarnath Yatra.

The aim of the program was the presentation of symptoms by high altitude travellers and early recognition of potentially fatal conditions.

Like every year, the directorate will deploy hundreds of health care workers for Yatra duties and in order to provide the best medical services to the devotees at make-shift hospitals.
