Union Tribal Affairs Minister Arjun Munda will re-launch “Swasthya,” which is a Tribal Health & Nutrition Portal: One-stop solution for the health & nutrition status of the tribal population.
This Portal is going to be launch on 17th August. Ministry of Tribal Affairs and Piramal Swasthya are going to launch this to develop this Tribal Health and Nutrition Portal.
‘Swasthya’ is going to be a comprehensive platform for health and nutrition-related information for India’s tribal population.
It fulfils requirements via dashboard, knowledge repository, partner segment, and Sickle Cell Diseases support corner. The dashboard curates data from multiple sources for 177 identified highly marginalized tribal districts.
This portal confines with various other subjects, such as innovations towards best practices for the tribal community from multiple sources related to tribal health and research studies. In addition, the SCD Support Portal enquires with people with Sickle Cell disease or trait to register themselves.
It is hoped that this Portal would bridge the existing knowledge in simplifying the needs, monitor evidence-based policy building, and catalyze a series of actions that will ultimately lead in enhancing the health and nutrition status of the tribal population.
The Portal will be handled by the Centre of Excellence for Knowledge Management in Health and Nutrition so that this would help in monitoring remote areas and construct means to enhance quality health.
This would enable us to work towards combining data for tribal health & nutrition. It would act as facilitating evidence-based policymaking, documenting successful models to regulate proper precaution, and caring towards each fragment.
This would work with best practices and innovative solutions, circulation, and facilitating the exchange of knowledge. It would help in creating networks and collaborating with stakeholders to improve tribal health & nutrition outcomes.
A healthy body is a healthy adage that stood the test of time. It is the most important factor which one demands to live function and grow. Since the morbidity is higher in this population, efforts should be made to improve their environmental, nutritional, sanitation, and personal hygiene.
