how india pays for america's health

there is an organization called the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) in the united states which boasts of a membership of 46,000 doctors.

if you wanted to form an organization called the indian association of physicians of indian origin (iapi) as a forum to facilitate and enable physicians working in rural india to excel in patient care, teaching and research etc., i bet you wouldn't find half as many members.

all state governments together don't employ half as many doctors in rural india, in over 6 lakh villages. and i am not even talking of absenteeism among those paid to work in the villages. vote for a government that'll send a chandrayaan-like mission to rural india to explore how people live there, in the absence of anything remotely resembling a public health system.
