In Uttar Pradesh, the BJP is also exploring expanding health facilities as a way to shore up its electoral prospects in the next assembly elections. While health services have improved in Uttar Pradesh under Yogi Adityanath, they did not improve under Mayawati or Akhilesh Yadav. During the Corona pandemic, when almost all states enacted a total lockdown to prevent the spread of corona infection, routine activities came to a halt, disrupting daily life, while Uttar Pradesh implemented a corona curfew policy.

Both life and livelihood were protected and maintained as a result of the Government of Uttar Pradesh's prudence. Along with the most essential activities such as medicine, Kirana shops, milk dairies, fruit and vegetable, industrial units, cold storages, agricultural works, construction works, manure-seed shops, and purchase centers for wheat-paddy and other agricultural products, the Government implemented this innovative system.

During the Corona curfew, a wheat procurement record was also set. Additionally, there were no restrictions on vital human mobility. For exceptional cases, an e-pass was supplied. Additionally, State Transport Corporation buses continued to run inside the state, ensuring that inhabitants had no difficulty traveling when necessary. Despite this, Uttar Pradesh has the best recovery rate in the nation. This state has one of the lowest positive rates. Naturally, Uttar Pradesh is a national leader in the area of health care.

The state actively promotes all medical practices. Additionally, special emphasis is being placed on the AYUSH medical system. Last year, President Ram Nath Kovind lay the foundation stone for the AYUSH University at Pipri Talkulha, Gorakhpur's Bhathat block. Mahayogi Guru Gorakhnath AYUSH University has been renamed. It will be Uttar Pradesh's first AYUSH university. Additionally, a high-quality research facility for Ayurveda, Yoga, and Naturopathy will be established on the university campus, where research will be encouraged via mutual coordination of interdepartmental medical systems. The AYUSH University, which will be erected on 52 acres of land, would cost Rs 300 crore to complete. AYUSH University's architecture will be fascinating and in keeping with Indian culture. Along with the academic building, the campus will also include an administrative building, a residential building, a hostel, a guest house, an auditorium, and a super-specialty block.

The University would link all state-run AYUSH, Ayurveda, Unani, Homeopathy, Yoga, and Naturopathy institutes, as well as colleges and educational institutions. The admission procedure, session regulation, examination administration, and results of AYUSH institutions would be consistent. The University will include facilities for building and study, teaching, and research for all paramedical, nursing, pharmacy, and wellness courses. This university will encourage yoga, Ayurveda medical education, higher education, technical education, agricultural education, skill development, and high-level research-based education. Additionally, institutions of excellence for investigation, counseling, and treatment, as well as study, teaching, and research, will be established in the premises to promote health via all of the disciplines of contemporary allopathy.

It is worth noting that all of the particular modes of yoga, including Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, and Mantra Yoga, are believed to be the fathers of the Mahayogi Guru Gorakhnath's many practical forms. Guru Gorakhnath is also credited for founding rasa shastra and Ayurvedic metal theory. Uttar Pradesh is also a leader in health care. In the recent four years, the state has offered health insurance coverage for up to 6.47 crore persons for up to 5 lakh rupees to one crore 18 lakh impoverished households. The Chief Minister's Health Protection Commission was established. In 47 districts around the state, a free dialysis center has been established.

Additionally, 56 district hospitals received a complimentary CT scan. In the state, there are 170 mobile medical units. At SGPGI Lucknow, a stem cell research center, a bone marrow transplant center, a liver transplant center, and a 60-bed trauma center are operational. The first robotic surgery has been performed. Construction is underway at the Emergency Medicine and Renal Transplant Centre.

It has been agreed to establish a new facility at SGPGI Lucknow with the name of the Institute of Diabetes and Endocrinology Department. Critical Care Hospital Blocks will be established in 45 districts of the state at government medical schools and institutions and medical universities. KGMU has established the state's first Integrated Spine Center and Medicine Department, as well as the state's first Milk Bank. At KGMU, a Forest and ReconseQuential Unit was established inside the Department of Plastic Surgery.
