HELP featured in Time Out ! An internship at Harvard Medical School back in the 1980s provided the inspiration for in-vitro fertilisation specialists Aniruddha and Anjali Malpani to set up a library in Mumbai in 1997, solely dedicated to a range of health and wellness titles. While some of the books from the collection, which is updated once in two months on average, are available online, the doctors are now expanding their reach further by creating a health wiki, where they ask both medical professionals and patients to share reference material, case studies and even survivor stories. In an email interview, Aniruddha explained to Arati Rao why he thinks the idea of “patient education” is something Indians will latch on to.
