The Coimbatore Corporation has formed a task force to oversee the improvements to various facilities in six health centres as part of the efforts to obtain ISO certification for them.

Announcing this on Monday at the launch of the second round of certification-related training for doctors and other staff of the health centres, Corporation Commissioner Anshul Mishra said an action plan had been drawn up. Areas that required improvements had been identified.

According to a press release from the Corporation, the Commissioner called upon the health centres to work hard to obtain the certification because quality medical care should be provided to people from economically weak sections.

The meeting discussed the availability of doctors, nurses and medical equipment. Deputy Commissioner V. Shanta, Assistant City Health Officer R. Sumathi, consultants for the certification process and officials of the Corporation were present at the meeting.
