Better Preventive and Curative Health Care

India's health indicators are not improving as fast as other socio-economic indicators. Good healthcare is perceived to be either unavailable or unaffordable. How can we improve healthcare conditions, both curative and preventive, especially relating to women and children?

Send all college and university teachers to areas and they can hold camps on these topics. let them get out of their ivory towers and work in society.

Mini labs vans can be set up and they can visit areas and teach people.

Govt has so much money to spare --so why cant mini lab vans be allocated to colleges and faculty told to do such camps.Vice Chancellors should make this task mandatory for all teachers.

Once the university teachers are involved in such activities, affirmative results will be seen.

• Mobile information cells should cover educating the villagers on personal hygiene, spread of contagious diseases and preventive measures which include handling of water, food etc.
• Health professionals should visit every village group at specific intervals and spread awareness using audio-visual media.
• All such village meetings should be entertainment cum learning and there should be incentive in cash or kind for attending the same.
