After Samagra Kutumba Survey (SKS) and Kanti Velugu, the State government has taken up yet another mammoth programme in which health details of every person in each household in the district will be recorded. Auxiliary Nurse Midwives (ANMs) have been entrusted with the task of collection of information to be supervised by District Medical and Health Officer Dr. Sudarshan.

“The process will continue until the collection of health details of the last person is complete. The government has set no specific deadline,” Dr Sudarshan said.

Specific formats have been designed for data collection, he said. In the initial phase, as many as 50 ANMs have been trained for the purpose and soon, another 50 would be roped in after proper training.
