Dear HIFA colleagues,

Sharing herewith a link to the work of Anchul team again. Also attached is the Pdf version. [*see note below]

This comes to you now on behalf of Dr. Suparna Ghosh (also a HIFA member) who was the Principal investigator. She is currently busy with a research project in the interior remote areas with poor net connectivity. Hence, I am sharing this with you now because there is much here that is relevant for the current discussion on CHWs.

Thanks and regards,
