KAPURTHALA: Impressed by Karnataka’s system of online availability of blood units, the state government would also launch a similar website in Punjab, through which consumers could get the required blood unit on a minimal price just by logging in the website.

Stating this, chief parliamentary secretary (CPS), family and health welfare Dr Navjot Kaur Sidhu, who was here on Wednesday, to attend the statelevel “national voluntary blood donation day” function, said that to break the nexus of selling blood units at high rates, the government will soon launch a website.

Navjot Kaur said that, despite the availability of blood units, the needy could not get blood on by some ‘fraud’ people, a network of blood donors would be created online. “I have forwarded the proposal to Dr Harsh Vardhan, union minister of family and health welfare, to launch the website and the file is already with him. Hopefully, soon we will get permission to launch the website,” she said.

She said that the website would make available a network of blood donors and the needy people could get the required blood units of any group from the nearest possible place through courier at a minimal price.

Dr Husan Lal, director of National Rural Health Mission, stated that after the success of providing health facilities in rural areas, government would launch 23 air conditioned kiosk
