Let us join hands against this failing state of healthcare in India
Poor quality public healthcare in India is killing both our present and future.
SIGN THE PETITION TO RAISE YOUR VOICE AND DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY
It is heart breaking that over the last five years, the country has seen at least four outbreaks of encephalitis epidemic in Bihar and UP — 2014, 2016, 2017 and now 2019, accounting for over 1,700 children dying needlessly.
The state of public healthcare in India, especially in states like Bihar, Assam, Uttar Pradesh and Odisha is shameful. It is showing no signs of improvement due to government’s apathy and lack of public pressure for the same.
Your voice will help us demand quality public healthcare in India.
Sign the petition now.
Children who died in Bihar, Assam and UP belonged to poor families. These deaths can be avoided, if there is public pressure and the government and other political parties pay due attention to the falling state of healthcare in India.
SIGN THE PETITION NOW. YOU VOICE HAS THE POWER TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
