Connecting local responses around the world
The patient has started taking medication regularly and also does yoga daily. She also phones her chachi (aunt) every 3-4 days and urges her to take her medication regularly. They now talk to each other regularly about health. The aunt was aware before but was not taking action. But through encouragement by this lady patient, the aunt has started taking medication and also exercising. This is an example of how people can support each other for better health outcomes.
