Focus on Bihar - Madhepura district
Madhepura district where the notorious River Kosi brings flood and famine on an all too regular basis, is served by the Anand Eye Hospital.
Dr. Amit Anand and his team have built trust amongst people who have been at the mercy of quack doctors for generations. The father of 6year-old Avilasa (pictured right) travelled around Bihar and finally found a hospital he could trust. She had successful cataract surgery.
A good eye doctor also knows when to refer patients with other medical complaints. And poor patients cannot afford high fees at private clinics. Dr Amit works closely with Dr Arpit Mathew of Madhepura Mission Hospital - both hospitals working for better medical care for the people of this district.
