Photographed in January, 2015, as part of a campaign to strengthen public health delivery in the community, these women who’d recently given birth, were given a ride home from the Primary Health Center located in Tamil Nadu, India.
Additional Information:
The public’s trust in its overarching healthcare system is integral to the maintenance of the effective delivery of treatment modalities to those in need, as well as participatory incentive on the part of the public when it involves the investigative process, which is the basis for the science of epidemiology. If the public is wary of its healthcare providers, or the system in general, it is more likely that members of the public who are ill will not seek treatment, or voluntarily come forth with information crucial to solving a disease outbreak investigation. The respectful, courteous manner with which these new mothers were being treated, will help to bolster their trust in the system, as well as their willingness to partake in its offerings, or requests, when they’re in need of healthcare in the future.
