There was some good advise given to bhagnari community, regarding major treatments by health care providers. I tried to write some comments after reading the article and was not able to do so . There fore I am going in the blog session to write my comments.
In addition to the suggestion made in that article, I recommend that the sick person should read about his disease on google or other sources, and make himself knowledgeable about his disease and various options available for the treatment.Then only you can ask appropriate questions from the health care provider.
More importantly, prevention of many diseases is very important. Main diseases that affect people around the world are Diabetes, High blood Pressure, High Cholesterol , Osteoporosis, Osteoarthitis ,Obesity,heart disease and some Cancers, specially breast cancer, .I had spoken to Dr Haresh Mehta , about conducting a multi specialty seminar in Panchayat hall to educate people about these diseases , their causes , prevention and the the treatment options .
Also to have a health fair once or twice a year to screen our community members.
