J&K Launches Pony Ambulance Service for Amarnath Pilgrims

The Directorate of Health Services Kashmir has introduced a 'Poney Ambulance' service for the Shri Amarnath Ji Yatra 2024. This innovative initiative, conceived by Dr. Mushtaq Ahmad Rathar and Secretary Health and Medical Education, Syed Abid Rashid Shah, aims to provide critical healthcare support to pilgrims. The horse-mounted emergency response system, equipped with medical kits and oxygen cylinders, will accompany pilgrims along both the Baltal and Pahalgam routes.

Managed by trained personnel, the service has significantly reduced morbidity and mortality rates among the pilgrims. The initiative has received widespread appreciation from the participants, enhancing their confidence and comfort during the yatra. This pioneering effort underscores Kashmir's commitment to delivering quality healthcare services in challenging terrains and sets a new standard for emergency response in remote areas.
