*Belagavi District Receives Approval for a Trauma Care Facility During the 11th Five-Year Plan (2007-12)
In a significant development for emergency medical services and trauma care in Belagavi district, the Government has sanctioned one trauma care facility during the 11th Five Year Plan (2007-2012) under the “National Programme for Prevention and Management of Trauma and Burn Injuries.” The information was revealed by Dr. Bharati Pravin Pawar, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, in response to questions raised by Shri Iranna Kadadi, the Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament representing Belagavi.
Shri Iranna Kadadi inquired the following questions to the Minister of Health and Family Welfare:
(a) whether Government is aware of the current number of trauma centers in Belagavi district;
(b) whether Government has any plans to establish additional trauma centers in the district to enhance emergency medical services and trauma care;
(c) whether Government has implemented the National Programme for Prevention and Management of Trauma & Burn Injuries (NPPMT &BI) in the district; and
(d) whether Government has collaborated with the State Government and local authorities to identify suitable locations for establishing new trauma centers in the district.
The establishment of the trauma care facility was approved based on a proposal received from the State, adhering to the norms of the scheme. However, there are no provisions for the identification of new trauma centers under the National Programme beyond the 12th Five-Year Plan.
With this approval, the district hospital in Belagavi is set to receive enhanced trauma care services, providing crucial support to accident victims and individuals facing burn injuries. The trauma care facility aims to improve emergency medical services and reduce the impact of traumatic incidents on the community.
Despite the absence of plans for additional trauma centers in the district under the National Programme, the Government’s move to sanction one facility represents a step towards reinforcing the region’s healthcare infrastructure. This development is likely to offer much-needed relief to residents and visitors of Belagavi during times of medical emergencies.
The collaboration between the Central Government, State Government, and local authorities is expected to pave the way for more coordinated efforts in providing timely and effective trauma care services. It is hoped that the newly sanctioned trauma care facility will set a precedent for prioritizing emergency medical services and trauma management in other regions of the country as well.
As the Government continues its efforts to strengthen healthcare facilities across the nation, initiatives like the “National Programme for Prevention and Management of Trauma and Burn Injuries” play a pivotal role in building resilience against traumatic incidents and ensuring the well-being of citizens.
