Dear Dr Neil,

New year greetings!

I truly endorse your comment on the paper. Understanding the roles and responsibilities with cultural context in the hindsight, can deliver better results in health delivery system.

I am interested in taking up this study in rural areas in Telangana, South India. Maybe a comparative study could be done in relation to the one conducted in Zambia. In case somebody wishes to collaborate, most welcome.
