A health centre without doctors

January 29; Girdih, Jharkhand

The sole health centre in the village of Nowdiha doesn’t have even a single doctor. The villagers have to travel 50 kilometres for treatment, to a different village altogether. Though the centre has been operationally active for the past 20 years, only 2 staff members show up occasionally to run a polio-vaccination program. Deliveries are still carried out by local, untrained women. When the health worker was asked about the conditions, he said, “The officers know everything, there is nothing else that I can say.” Community Correspondent Beena Bharti reports.
