Bridging connectivity gaps for better health services
With a new political transition, it may be a good idea for the new government to work on an idea as to how to enable all health workers across the country to have data-enabled smartphones
If you have no electricity, you can survive despite inconvenience; if you have no pucca house, you still survive on thatched shelters; if you have bad roads, you can still communicate on the patched roads. But if you don’t have sound health, you simply lose your life. That’s what happens in villages of India. The fundamentals of the belief and practice of the principal secretary of health in Madhya Pradesh government are pretty clear on this. Pravir Krishn, the Indian Administrative Service officer, lives every day to bring down the infant and maternal mortality rate down in his state. A culture of health consciousness and communication is being created, where each and every health worker is connected with the health ministry.
