To provide healthcare facilities in rural areas, the government today launched a telemedicine initiative in collaboration with Apollo Hospitals under which people can consult doctors through video link. 

As part of the service named 'Sehat', people in rural areas can consult doctors online and also order generic drugs. 

The Common Service Centres (CSCs) have been delivering tele-consultation services with support from Apollo and Medanta in some areas and now with this initiative the tele- consultation services are being extended to 60,000 CSCs across the country.
