about us

Health constitutes barely two percent of the total news content in the mainstream media. Healthpost.in aims to fill the need for credible information on critical national health issues. We will not only report news, but also offer context and insights.

The idea is to empower all stakeholders --doctors, patients, researchers, health care industry-- through sharing of ideas, knowledge and experiences.

We will critically appraise scientific research, minutely analyse the details of policy proposals, sort through complicated healthcare economics, and bring you information about diseases, conditions, and wellness issues in language everyone can understand.

We will not only bring to the fore challenges facing the health sector but also suggest solutions, because the ultimate objective of the Healthpost is to be a catalyst of change.

And we believe that the Web, which allows for depth, scope, readers' engagement , and links unlike any other medium, has the potential to revolutionise health journalism .

We will be grateful for your feedback and suggestions on how to improve Healthpost, what it should and should not do as a journalism platform.You can reach us at info@healthpost.in
