Kerala government decided to supply generic medicine free of costAs per the latest news the Kerala government has decided to supply generic medicine free of cost to non- income tax payers and those who did not have government jobs. It will be good news for Keralitis. Generic medicines were already supplied free to patients in government hospitals but the new scheme will help to distribute it to other poor people. The scheme will starts from November 1st, the state formation day.
Medicines are now a part of our life, the cost of medicine is very high, in this situation the implementation of this type of schemes in health department by Kerala government is most helpful for people who suffering poverty.
Alcohol is injurious to health but its consumption among Kerala people is very high, in this situation it is a good decision that 1 % cess collected on annual turnover of the Kerala State Beverages Corporation will use for supplying generic medicines free.
In my opinion Kerala State Beverages Corporation is also responsible for the unhealthy situation in Kerala.
