Hospital crisis in India

IMG_0275The Nurses Christian Fellowship and Nursing Student Association sponsored a meet and greet on November 10 with journalist Michael Edison Hayden and photographer Sami Siva. Edison Hayden and Siva spent time on the Brookings campus November 9-10 to lecture and visit classes as part of their Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting Campus Consortium.

Edison Hayden and Siva report that in impoverished regions of India, the population outnumbers what medical staffs can safely handle, and equipment is either dated or broken. They provided an overview of India’s health care crisis as seen through doctors, government officials and activists.
