Millennium Fellowship Project: Swasth Seva - Telemedicine for Migrant Labour
Swasth Seva is a not-for-profit social venture set up by three students of Ashoka University, Sonipat, Haryana.
They will provide a free telemedicine platform which connects volunteer doctors with at-risk patients. The aim is to reduce the burden on such patients and doctors, alike.
They do not aim to replace the need for proper medical attention, treatment or diagnosis but provide sound medical advice to whom access to medical facilities or any kind of medical advice is difficult.
