Indore, July 18, 2014 A much needed social service in the socio-medical field has been launched by eminent doctors. INDIA HEALTH LINE Madhya Pradesh state launch took place in Indore in presence of eminent specialist doctors & representatives of medical fraternity.

Launching INDIA HEALTH LINE, renowned Cancer Surgeon & VHP International Working President Dr Pravin Togadia said, “There are untreated diseases only because patients after primary examination by the doctor do not approach specialist doctors as advised. It is mainly due to poverty, fear of increased medical expenses if some serious disease is detected & sometimes even ignorance. The disease does not stop; it grows further affecting efficiency of the patient, impacting human working hours & when delayed the serious disease treatment costs much higher. Entire family gets affected by this. The poor, lower middle class & middle class families suffer more due to this. To avoid this, INDIA HEALTH LINE aims at connecting Medical Fraternity with the needy & poor patients. Doctors are a part of this great nation & the society. They always want to help. Now INDIA HEALTH LINE has given them avenue to help. So far nationally thousands of specialist doctors like Cancer Surgeons, Neuro Surgeons, Cardiologists, Gynecologists, Nephrologists, Urologists & many other specialist doctors have got associated with IHL. They will see the patients per appointment arranged by IHL & advice further. To streamline further, thousands of Pathology Labs, X Ray / MRI / CT Scan Centers, Chemists Shops, Hospitals / Day Care Centers, Ambulances / Blood Banks have come ahead to be a part of this socially important initiative to help the needy patients & save valuable human working hours of the nation & of course to save many lives.
