Health facilities in Jharkhand have become better than before and now people just need to show confidence.
Deputy Commissioner of Godda Kiran Kumari Pasi, at 8: 51 am in the Sunday morning, in Godda’s Sadar Hospital, gave birth to a healthy baby boy, through C-section.
She wants ordinary people to have faith in the systems run by the government.
Kiran Kumari, who was originally from Bhatgaon in Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow district, was married to Dr. Pushpendra in 2011.
Kiran, who became Deputy Commissioner of Godda district two years ago, has made lots of efforts to transform the system here.
Deputy Commissioner Kiran also has a 6-year-old daughter.
Her husband, who is the Dean of the Agriculture College in Godda district, is happy with her decision. Women doctors involved in the Caesarean section could not hide her happiness over the deputy commissioner’s decision.
Be it a matter of opening up of a blood bank, or to start regular studies in the local agricultural college, or ensuring that the Sadar Hospital does not run short of essential health facilities, she had played an active role in all those things that really matter to people.
She hopes her decision to give birth in a government hospital will be noticed by women belonging to all classes.
People with influence and status believe in taking private healthcare facility. Hence, her decision to trust Government doctors right from the start of pregnancy to delivery, took many by surprise.
Kiran Pasi has sent an important message: health care services being provided by the state government, are being transformed.
She has set an example by admitting herself at the Government hospital for delivery. Her decision has broken stereotypes about government hospitals. The decision of the bureaucrat to visit government-run hospital instead of private ones has emerged as an assurance to common people of the district.
