Health centres sans blood storage units

Jalandhar, July 11

The state government has failed to establish blood storage units (BSUs) in nearly 100 community health centres (CHCs), where mandatory facilities to conduct emergency deliveries are provided under the National Rural Health Mission.

Setting up of BSUs at such health centres was one of the most important components of the mission, which was introduced nearly two years ago in the state. The mission has cited the lack of timely availability of pure blood during such emergency conditions as the major reason behind maternal deaths in rural areas.
