The Haryana government has expanded the scope of health services for children of the state by implementing Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (national child health programme), which was initially launched in Ambala, Karnal and Panchkula in July 2013 and now it has been started in all districts of Haryana.

The health minister, Rao Narender Singh, said in a release on Monday that the RBSK was a child health screening and early intervention services programme to provide comprehensive care, including free of cost treatment (surgical as well as medical), to children.

The scheme covers children from their birth to 18 years of age, who are registered in anganwari centres, government and government-aided schools of Haryana for birth defects, diseases, deficiencies, developmental delays, including disability.
