India's Hospital Train
25 min • Health & Science, Society • 2018
In rural India, a train decked out as a hospital is providing free healthcare and surgery to the country’s most remote communities. The Lifeline Express in Latur is a train-cum-hospital providing healthcare to rural Indian communities. Dr. Nilesh is one of two surgeons working on the train. Hundreds of people flock from nearby villages to receive treatment. Not all will get it, but for the lucky ones, the results can be life-changing, like in the case of Virat and Aditya where both have cerebral palsy, but after receiving surgery on the train, both are now expected to walk again.
