Keeping in mind today’s tech-savvy and web-based generation, Government of Karnataka has taken a step forward in promoting BJP’s Swachh Bharat campaign by launching the “Healthizen” app for all the Smartphone users. The imperative feature of this app is to involve common people directly with the government authorities to address issues regarding community health and hygiene in their native city.
Developed by Health and Family Welfare department, this mobile application has been launched currently in the Banglore City on a trial basis and depending on the response it will soon be available in the other cities as well. Union Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan released this app on October 17th and has said “This app would certainly increase awareness among citizens to maintain better and healthy living standards in their city.”
