Convergence of activities of Health Ministry & Sports Ministry for ‘Fit India’

To give a  thrust to the national ‘Fit India’ movement, it has been decided that  there will be  a convergence of activities of Ministry of Health and Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports. Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan stated this after meeting Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju yesterday for charting the convergent actions of the two Ministries for greater visibility and synergy towards popularising fitness in the country in various age groups.

Fit India Movement was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi  earlier this year to encourage people to remain healthy and fit by including physical activities and sports in their daily lives. Dr Vardhan said the Ministry will be engaging with its all institutions along with other medical institutions and organisations to create nationwide awareness  about fitness and wellness. He said, the Ministry will also  actively engage with the state governments, state Health Ministers and principals of various medical colleges. Dr Vardhan said, fitness forms an integral part of wellness and in view of this, the government has already included various activities such as yoga, meditation, daily physical activities in Health and Wellness Centres across the country.
