Meghalaya recently devised a three-dimensional State Health Policy that focuses on prevention, curative and enabling aspects of the healthcare system.

The policy entails provisions to make affordable and quality healthcare facilities available to the poor and marginalized.

It also lays special emphasis on a decentralized catalytic leadership model that involves all stakeholders representing all departments concerned at the PHC and CHC levels.

The use of artificial intelligence and technology will also be incorporated to guarantee timely healthcare to all.
