WEALTH WITH WELL-BEING
Tamil Nadu is not just about wealth creation, but also about well-being. With over 300 multi-specialty hospitals and very well-developed public health facilities, it is considered as a model state for public healthcare. It has already achieved the Millennium Development Goals
set by the United Nations, fulfilling the national target far ahead of most other states.
A mid-day meal scheme running in schools since the early 1960s, ensures that poor children are not pulled out of the education system
due to economic compulsions. Indeed, the basics, in cases of poor students are given free – books, uniforms, cycles and even laptops, as a matter
of routine each year. An efficient self-selecting Public Distribution System, which is a model for the country, also ensures food and basic commodities
at fair prices.
