Strict policies needed to control use of antibiotics. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are an alarming problem, especially in countries like India where people can easily get their hands on prescription antibiotics, don’t complete (VERY important) the prescribed antibiotic course, and don’t follow proper sanitary practices. Deaths related to secondary infections are high. Pharmacies should be regulated. There should be records (tied to Aadhar Card no.) when antibiotics are prescribed.

I would suggest to leverage of existing resources by setting-up health-care call centers to provide affordable healthcare to all. India has 6,38,365 villages and about 75% of population is living in villages. Most of the rural population of India do not have access of basic health care – either due to lack of medical facilities, basic infrastructure. A health care call can connect and provide access all existing resources effectively and efficiently. Details are in attached file.

Work place health promotion is an excellent way to disseminate information to a large group of diverse individuals. We have talks on the leading chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidemia with a special focus on the preventive measure that individuals can take for these diseases. Today we had a free health screening where BMI, waist circumference, BP, and blood lipids and glucose were assessed. This is an excellent initiative that should be incorporated into all workplaces.

Better counselling and clear instructions to the less educated and poor from doctors/nurses/hospital admin are needed. Such patients/their families should not be made to run around as many times they have to give up a day’s wage to make one hospital trip. What is “obvious” to educated people is unheard and incomprehensible to them. They get overwhelmed. In Mumbai I saw patients suffer and made to do multiple trips because they inadvertently did mistake due to lack of understanding.

We have diagnostic labs all over India.Most of them are unorganised. Not standardised.Investigations are unreliable.All labs should undergo evaluation, grading and standardization by a central agency .It should be mandatory. Non compliance should cause the lab to be shut down until it corrects.Regular inspections should be carried out to ensure compliance. Quality programmes to be undertaken to ensure all labs adhere to the guidelines and measures. They should take patient lives seriously.
