He wishes to find out what percentage of the rural areas is not accessible to the public health centers. He also looks at two aspects, the management and clinical governance of these healthcare centers from the point of view of how healthcare centers are managed today and how medical treatment is accessible in the rural areas.

“I visited a village in Chikballapur in North Karnataka and found that the public healthcare center was closed at noon. When I called the doctor he said that it was his lunch time and he would come at 3 p.m. but he never came. The government promises and talks about public health care centers but the real picture is completely different,” said Prof. Jeevan.

Prof. Jeevan said to The Beacon, “How government has the money and the infrastructure but doctors don’t want to work in the villages. Hence he asked who is answerable?,”
