The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has revealed that it will work with the government to help train school dropouts to work in the health sector.
Dr E S Krishnamoorthy, convener, healthcare panel in Tamil Nadu said that a six-month orientation course may help school dropouts to get to work as ward boys in hospitals.
"We will have to work out the certificate programme, the syllabus and contents," he said at a press conference. "The government has put in beds and infrastructure in these centres. The corporates can put in place systems and process."
He also added that many hospitals would now need to work for NABH accreditation as it was compulsory for health insurance purposes.
