Nyaya Health recently started a procurement team to assess the accumulation and distribution of materials, including medicines. At Bayalpata Hospital medicines are distributed to patients in need free of charge. However, we consider the ensure that patients are educated on the specific function and instructions for their medicines to prevent misuse or overdose. With high rates of illiteracy in the Achhami population, we take responsibility for guiding patients to understand the medicine they are receiving and make sure the prescriptions are necessary and not harmful.
