There are not enough State helpline numbers (non – functional / shortage of staff) for guiding everyone about next steps in both Covid-19 and Non Covid-19 Health issues. Nearly 2 Million citizens in India face the situation of in-accessibility of a doctor’s advice and healthcare facility everyday. There were 130M visits to doctors mostly for essential problems like child health, gynae etc. in 2018.
In the light of urgency of CoVID 19 Pandemic, Aaroogya has formed “COVID 19 Pandemic Well-being Task Force” along with 21 partner organizations for Health Information and recommendation by Healthcare Professionals using Tele-Consultation with the help of a Helpline Information System and a website for both Normal cell phone and Smartphone user.
