Jan Swasthya Sahyog - Part 1

This is a documentary that was aired on national television in India about the challenges faced and work done by a group of doctors in rural tribal India.

A couple of months ago, I asked my physician father Raju Rao to visit the the area in India where I was working as a journalist covering health and gender. I wanted him to see Jan Swasthya Sahyog (JSS), a health organization started by five doctors in Chhattisgarh, one of the poorest states in India, to provide services to rural and tribal communities far from mainstream health care. I had visited their rural hospital twice before for various assignments and found their approach to health immensely fascinating and effective. http://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2015/11/29/449117695/treating-the-poor-in-india-made-him-a-better-cancer-doc-in-the-u-s
