Our website is focused on an Indian audience, who do not always have access to high quality medical information. This site will, we hope, provide them with information that they can trust, be appropriate to their social and economic circumstances and, most importantly, be of an ‘international’ quality. It is designed to be a one-stop site, where all the questions a person asks regarding his or her health problems, will be answered in clear and simple language. We provide health news, advice on how to keep fit, features on seasonal illnesses, and a list of where to find good medical care in the various parts of India.
DoctorNDTV.com is being supported by one of India’s major media companies, as a kind of pro bono gesture. It is an entirely not-for-profit venture; however, we are going to try and make it self-supporting in two years through ‘ethical’ advertising and sponsorships which do not, in any way, conflict with our site’s intellectual integrity. Profits, if they occur, will be used to improve the site.
We hope that the site will evolve continuously. We also look forward to hearing from you if you have any suggestions for improvement, or even objections, to some of the material we are carrying. We will carefully consider all of these and always be ready to change our content or style, so that the site increases in its relevance, efficacy, and above all, its usefulness.
