Min launches free diagnostic services

NAHARLAGUN, Oct 28: Health Minister Alo Libang on Monday launched the free diagnostic services at the Tomo Riba Institute of Health & Medical Sciences here.
The minister informed that 55 health facilities in the state have been identified for provision of free diagnostic services.
“It would drastically lower the high out-of-pocket expenditure on diagnostics in the state, thereby immensely benefitting the poor patients,” Libang said.
He advised the medical officers and patients to start treatment only after receiving proper diagnoses of diseases. (DIPR)
