Forwarding a message I received from Dr Dharav Shah who is creating a wave of change in youngsters across India making them abstaining from the first puff and the first drink so they lead a healthy and happy life without the poisons we love.
Do watch the video. I had tears only once, but your mileage may vary.
Last week i had forwarded TEDx talk of Dr Taru, who had worked in a district hospital of Bihar. The NGO with which she was working, needs doctors for similar work in district hospitals in Bihar.
If you know any surgeon, Gynecologist, pediatrician or Anaesthetist who would probably like to take up this challenge for 6 months or more, please inform them about this opportunity to contribute. Please forward this ad in your medico groups

In a concerted effort to improve the health indicators, CARE-India, has been working with the Govt. of Bihar, has been working since 2010 towards a healthy Bihar. you may have seen TEDx talk of Dr Taru Jindal was working within this model at the Motihari district hospital.
You will be a member of a high-performance team of specialists (Anaesthesiologist, Obstetrician, Paediatrician and a General surgeon) working within the District Hospital - which WHO has recommended as the key facility for the delivery of Emergency care. The mode will be continuous and intense engagement with clinical work and clinical mentoring for 4-6 months at a single facility to impact the Emergency care metrics as outlined by the Lancet Commissions.
The Govt of Bihar has agreed for an initial pilot of 5 district hospitals, with a rapid scale-up to all 35 district hospitals and the First Referral Unit (FRU) hospitals.
Salaries and working conditions will be in keeping with International health NGO standards.
Safety and accommodation are a priority for our personnel at CARE-India. While there are many Government, University and Non-Government agencies supporting this program, you will be on the employee payroll of CARE-India (and not of the Govt of Bihar nor the WHO).
