Desiraju said in Primary Health Centers (PHC) and Community Health Centers (CHC), qualified people are not available for related diagnosis. It is required to carry out the good work undertaken by the institute by providing the qualified people in PHC and CHC by expanding and establishing its branches in other parts of India also.
He said AIISH is presently confined to Mysore, but it has to be linked with other institutes especially in the north to render its services.
