AlJazeera on health care in rural India

I just chanced upon this video on the state of health care in rural India by Al Jazeera English. For a network which is new to covering India they have produced a remarkably balanced report. In a span of a few minutes they give us a glimpse of India's huge burden of common yet potentially deadly infectious diseases such as diarrhoea, the worry and hardships faced by poor rural patients, the ailing government health care system, the frustrations of a doctor working for low pay in a remote area, the corruption within the system, the health movement with its activists and the private medical industry which is far away from all this reality.

Kudos Al Jazeera.
