DR PRANAV SHETTY
INDIA ABROAD DOCTOR OF THE YEAR AWARD 2014
‘We spend worldwide a lot of money on militaries and training
exercises. But what’s going to be the greatest killer probably over
the next 50 years — barring a world war — is infectious disease
and we don’t pay attention to that as much.’
For the last five years, Dr Pranav Shetty has been among the first
doctors to go knee deep into war-zones, areas hit by natural
disasters and deadly epidemics, including Ebola. The winner of
the first India Abroad Doctor of the Year Award shares his
experience of striving to keep the world healthy with Aziz Haniffa.
