The head of PM Strategic Reforms Unit said that this move is part of the National CPR Training Initiative and it will be implemented in the country very soon. Under this program, the CPR training will be provided to each citizen and they can save the precious lives of the people in case of any emergency. The PM will announce the reforms in healthcare sector and the CPR training will be started in the country.
