Abiramapuram-based Chitra Sivakumar used to print and publish Padham, a publication focussed on heath. Last year, she not only went online-only but the pandemic made her focus her work, acutely.
Says Chitra, “With the focus across the globe turning towards health, PadhaHealthNews.org helps in demystifying one of the biggest challenges the world, the health sector, in particular, has come to face.”
So Padham carries articles on understanding the virus, with updates on it through the current period besides pieces on good hygiene, staying fit, taking care of your mental health, medical essentials to stock up on and what the current virus wave means to teens and children.
Adds Chitra, “We have also had expert articles on elective surgeries- how to go about them and on health-specific topics such as Tuberculosis.”
