Who am I ??
I am Dr. Subhash Chettri, the author of the blog childhealtheducation.net. I have done my MBBS and MD in Pediatrics from JIPMER at Pondicherry (India) and later fellowship in Pediatric Intensive Care from National Board of Examinations. Throughout my training years, I observed that basic health knowledge could save many lives, at the same time may reduce costs for poor people in case of minor ailments. It will also reduce unnecessary use of many drugs (and hence prevent their side effects). During my practice also, I come across a lot of children to us with ailments which can be safely managed at home with or without over the counter drugs. On the other hand, often very sick children are brought to us late, which worsens treatment outcomes. Unfortunately, health education is not a separate subject in most schools. This is a website to educate people regarding health issues of children in common man’s language avoiding technical terms.
