The Outpatient Department (OPD) figure in Aam Aadmi Clinics hit one crore on Tuesday, said Health Minister Dr Balbir Singh here. “Over 1 crore people in the state have availed free treatment from Aam Aadmi Clinics in the last one and half year,” he said.

There are 664 Aam Aadmi Clinics — 236 in urban areas and 428 in Rural areas —providing free treatment, 80 types of free medicines and 38 types of free diagnostics tests.
