He further said that the Ayushman Bhavah campaign is a collaborative effort spearheaded by Gram Panchayats in coordination with the Department of Health, other government departments, and local elected bodies in rural and urban areas. The main objective of this campaign is to extend comprehensive healthcare coverage to every village and town, transcending geographical barriers and ensuring that no one is left behind, said Mandaviya.
