Specially poor people cannot get healthcare facilities from a private hospital, because private sector health facilities quite expensive. Therefore poor people have to go to the government hospital to get the necessary treatments. But always they criticize the public sector healthcare system. To encourage and empower health service officer we organized this event. #Article25, #Right To Health
