In what we see as an exciting positive development, our internet-based ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) educational program is being successful in empowering health care professionals from all over the country. We have already completed 5 different ECHO courses, some with as many as 22 leading spokes. We are immensely grateful to Dr Sanjeev Arora, the pioneering founder of ECHO International who agreed to work with us and to build our capacity.
The famous Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) directed by Dr Srinath Reddy has taken over the task of evaluation of ECHO-India.
On the 27th of November 2018, we had representatives from both ECHO-India and PHFI on their evaluation visits. For us in Pallium India, it was a great learning experience.
