Rural India is unique when it comes to healthcare services. It believes in the traditional methods of medication, and is adapting
fastly to the western medication as well. But, the delay in treatment is what worsens the situation.
With an idea to integrate the two domains of treatment, we started this project in a group of 12 in the Chilarwant panchayat
of Chhota Udepur. In the course of the project, we visited 6 villages namely Chilarwant, Khodivalli, Zer, Malaja, Khajuriya
and Thanthoda. We also went to the Community Hospital and Taluka Panchayat Office, Chota Udepur and the Primary Health Centers
at Tejgadh, Malaja and Zoz.
We interacted with the villagers, badwas, Block level officers and Doctors to figure out the availability of medication to
the villagers, and means of bettering it. To conclude, we were able to assess the history and nature of diseases in these
villages, and documented a play to create medical and educational awareness among the villagers. We proposed setting up of
a web site, a Virtual Hospital, which could be the convergence of the two streams.
A first hand experience of Governmental structure of medication was knowledgable, and on the other sides, pathetic infrastructural
situation in villages like Moti Zer were of concern.
