Agartala, December 13. In a significant move aimed at providing quality healthcare, the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) has, for the first time, launched a special consultation service for cancer patients at Kherengbar Hospital in Khumulwng, the headquarters of TTAADC.
After inaugurating the service, Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma, the royal scion and former chairman of Tipra Motha, announced that initially, this service would be available every second Wednesday of the month.
“We are delighted to announce that on every second Wednesday of each month, people residing in TTAADC areas who are suffering from cancer can avail treatment at Kherengbar Hospital. Many individuals have been traveling to Vellore, Chennai, and other distant places for expensive cancer treatments. Now, this service will be accessible at Kherengbar. If the number of patients increases, we will extend the service to 15 days a month and consider further expansion based on demand. Our primary goal is to ensure that indigenous people, who are currently spending significant amounts on their treatment, can receive affordable and high-quality treatment locally,” said Pradyot.
He mentioned that consultations would be provided free of cost, and the operation fees would be minimal.
