The Telangana Information Technology Association (TITA) and the American Telangana Society (ATS) have come together to launch health services to help patients battling Covid-19 in rural areas in the state.

Both the organisations in May announced their plan of action to deal with the raging pandemic through the TITA’s TConsult initiative that helped the masses during the first wave of Covid deal with various health issues. The TITA and the ATS have launched joint efforts by establishing the first-ever Covid Dawakhana at the Zilla Parishad High School in Maganur.

Principal Secretary, IT and Industry, Jayesh Ranjan launched the first Covid Dawakhana virtually. Narayanpet District Collector Dasari Harichandana appreciated the initiative launched by TITA global President Sundeep Kumar Makthala. The TITA plans to expand services across the state in the coming days. At the launch of the services, villagers availed online medical advice on Covid from doctors at nine sub-centres. Worried at the pandemic affecting people in rural areas, the ATS decided to provide online health and medical services to the masses. Representatives from the ATS approached the TITA to reach out to the people to provide health services. Makthala, after visiting various places, selected Maganur to provide online medical and health services to people.
