The Helping Hand Foundation works to promote trust in the public health
service. In the second video, Mr Askari discusses the social stigma and
fear that has arisen around Covid-19 and how this has impacted care
seeking. We hear about a growing issue of inappropriate treatment
expectations, with patients wanting investigations and medications that
they believe to be necessary and the challenges of the urban/rural
divide that exists in India.
