Jammu and Kashmir has consistently faced challenges in its healthcare system. In the past, due to terrorism and other factors, the healthcare sector in Jammu and Kashmir suffered greatly. Despite a significant increase in population, the medical infrastructure remained insufficient to meet the needs of all residents, particularly those in remote areas who had limited access to healthcare facilities. Recognizing the severity of the situation, the current NDA Government has placed extraordinary emphasis on healthcare. Two AIIMS facilities have been allocated to Jammu and Kashmir, both of which are nearing completion, with outpatient services already underway. Additionally, Government Medical Colleges have been established in various districts, reducing the necessity for people to travel to major cities like Jammu or Srinagar for medical treatment. The introduction of mobile health units has further facilitated healthcare access in remote regions. The number of medical seats has doubled in recent years, reflecting efforts to address the shortage of healthcare professionals and enhance medical education opportunities.

Comparing the current healthcare facilities to those available a decade ago reveals a significant improvement. There has been a manifold increase in healthcare infrastructure and services. The distribution of Ayushman cards to the entire population of Jammu and Kashmir is a noteworthy public-oriented initiative aimed at expanding healthcare coverage. Over the past decade, there has been a complete transformation in the healthcare sector, significantly improving access to medical services.
