for the netizens in India there is some great news. A new website on health has been launched as part of an Indo-Canadian project. The website, www.galaxyofhealth.com , is being spearheaded in India by Vikram Sharma. A Canadian software solutions company will provide the infrastructure. The idea behind the project is to provide free medical information to anyone who gets on to the website.
All the visitor has to do is to type out his/her question or problem and leave an e-mail address or a fax number. A panel of doctors will address the problem and reply within 12 hours. More importantly, the corporation offers to undertake free treatment for patients who are unable to afford basic medical care.
Those who log in are asked to write in about patients who they feel cannot afford expensive care in hospitals and nursing homes.
