Episode #7 India

This has been an episode that we have been wanting to cover for quite some time. Something that’s always struck me is the extreme level of apathy present within India when it comes to the public health crises within the country. As we’ve both seen first hand how these continue to affect many individuals, we thought it would be important to have a discussion about some of these public health issues.

 

Throughout this episode, we discuss some root causes related to why these issues exist, along with who they affect and what’s being done by the Indian government to help enact some level of change.
