Project Officer Public Health Foundation of India Shillong Meghalaya

The Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) is working towards building a healthier India.  

The project would attempt to design and facilitate the adoption of alternate model(s) for responding to the critical shortage of medical specialists in select states. Medical specialists are scarce in India, and the numbers are disproportionately lower in the public sector, at the Community Health Centre (CHC) level and above. Even district hospitals in several states have an acute shortage of medical specialists. Increasing the conventional supply side of medical specialists is expensive and slow in demonstrating results.

The project is based at Shillong, Meghalaya.
