India ranks 135 in the new health index

India ranks 135 in the new health index based on the sustainableĀ development goals. In a new study by the collaboration of the global burden if disease, ranks India ahead of Pakistan but behind Syria. Iceland ranks the highest at 80 and Central African Republic at 20 is the lowest. India’s score is 42.

India continues to struggle with sustainable development goals as there is no focus on public health. Sometime ago, I had written a piece carried by the News Minute, where I had discussed the possibility of using social media and weather data to prepare for medical situations and disease conditions.

Digital can help us make these changes and improve the health conditions. The question is whether we have the will to invest more in public health surveillance ?
