We are keeping our fingers crossed and taking all possible precautions to keep the virus away! The COVID-19 pandemic has been an eye opener for me, as it must be for you. Our public healthcare is in shambles. The under-funded government hospitals are collapsing under the weight of the pandemic due to shortage of staff and equipment. The private hospitals are charging exorbitant rates for even trying to get a bed, denying many a chance to access quality health services.
Oxfam India, a charity I have been supporting for some years now, has taken up this issue and are demanding for a strong public healthcare system, for an increased government spending on healthcare, and for regulation of private hospitals.
Millions of Indians are pushed into poverty every year. Demanding a strong public healthcare system is the only way to ensure that each one of us, irrespective of any social or economic background, have access to quality healthcare services without any discrimination and without the fear of being pushed into poverty. COVID-19 has shown us that we need to be better prepared for a pandemic of this scale. And the only way forward is a strong public healthcare system.
I am raising funds for Oxfam India so that they continue to fight for us and work with policy makers to ensure a strong healthcare system. Let s do it together! Join me to support Oxfam India.
