THCB’s own correspondent in India

Less than a month ago, I quit my job as a newspaper health care reporter and moved to India. No, I wasn’t fleeing the dismal atmosphere permeating traditional newsrooms these days (not entirely at least). This was a premeditated step to travel and learn about health care in the world’s largest democracy before starting Johns Hopkins Masters in Public Health Program this summer. Oh, and in the meantime, I joined the staff of THCB.

After 16 days in Hyderabad (located in the south-central state of Andhra Pradesh), I’ve adjusted to the heat, spicy food and traffic, and am now ready to begin some real reporting. Over the next month or two, I’ll share what I learn on THCB. I’m particularly interested in the exploding private health sector, the emerging health insurance markets, maternal and child health, and the wide gaps in care between the haves and the have-nots.

If you have any contacts in Hyderabad or suggestions for posts, please feel free to contact me at sarnquist@gmail.com or in the comments section.
