Bangalore Health Festival from April 27

A four-day Bangalore Health Festival will be held in the city from April 27 to provide a platform for stakeholders in the healthcare industry to interact with the public on general health.

Organised by TV House Network Pvt Ltd, the festival will be held at Tripuravasini, Palace Grounds. The festival aims at ​increasing awaren­e­ss on preventive healthcare. “The mortality rate has come down, but the quality of life too has suffered. New diseases have come to the fore. Skyrocketing costs of medicine and treatment are the primary causes for this,” said festival director Deepak Thimmaiah.

Even as there are good hospitals and skilled experts as well as insurance policies which prioritise patient care, people are skeptical about the medical field. This is mainly due to lack of awareness, he said, adding the festival aimed at familiarising the common man with the medical field.

The festival will have activities such as open house, talks by specialists, health check-up, hospital promotion and presentation booths, panel discussions, debates and streetplays. A committee of five prominent doctors from Karnataka will take part in the sessions. The ticket rates are Rs 50 per day and Rs 100 for three days for adults and Rs 20 for children.
