We have been training traditional medicine and untrained medicine practitioners on management of surgical wounds and early detection of cancer. This has been happening in the villages especially of Punjab and some of our mission hospitals.
We have now trained more than 500 such individuals in Punjab alone and more in the mission hospitals.
The health ministry in Punjab in recognition of our work has now tasked us to train 2000 community health workers (ASHA workers) of 16 districts in early cancer detection.
Exciting times (and congratulations from Friends of Ludhiana)
