29 July 2017 Current Affairs:

The Punjab health minister Brahm Mohindra launched a flagship care companion health scheme.

The main aim is to improve patient outcomes through better family engagement and education.

The state department of health and family welfare signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Noora Health India Trust, a healthcare-profit organisation, for implementation of the ‘Care Companion Programme’ (CCP).

The objective is to reduce the number of infant deaths and complications like infections in the first 30 days post discharge and ensure adoption of long-term health pro-motive behaviours. The innovative programme includes teaching the family of patient’s high-impact medical skills to take care of the patients in the hospital and at home.
