With this post, we would like to seek your very specific inputs on what needs to be done to make the Public Health System a proactive and responsive one.

Also, please share what is it that the Central Government, State Government and Local Administration should do to minimize the spread of infectious, water borne or mosquito related diseases and how they should respond to ensure theses don't become widespread negatively impacting a large number of citizens.
