More than one crore people have availed treatment at 'aam aadmi clinics' in Punjab, State Health Minister Balbir Singh said on Tuesday.

There are 664 'aam aadmi clinics' -- 236 in urban areas and 428 in rural areas -- in the state. These provide free of cost treatment, offering 80 types of free medicines and 38 types of free diagnostics tests.

"Over one crore people in the state have availed free treatment from these 'aam aadmi clinics' in the last one and half years," Singh said in a statement.
