How to manage outbreaks in the face of a healthcare crisis

Dr. Snehal Patel, CEO and Co-Founder, MyDoc

When the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the recent 2019-nCoV Novel Coronavirus outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), I was in Bangkok speaking to a few business partners about expanding our digital healthcare services in the country. Naturally, in Thailand, there were a lot of concerns surrounding the 2019-nCoV coronavirus, more commonly referred to as the Wuhan virus.

Thursday Tips: Here's why your diets aren't working

We all know someone who seems to always be on some sort of diet to lose weight. It’s rare to hear about success stories of people losing weight and keeping it off over time.

How do we define success? A truly successful weight loss programme is one that can ensure a weight loss beyond one year after completion of the programme. In fact, studies show that the percentage of people who fail to keep the weight off after 5 years is around 80%.

Oh no! But why? Everyone can lose weight, but very few can maintain it. While there are many reasons why that is the case, the biggest issue with most diets is the lack of education.
