Access to adequate healthcare infrastructure remains a distant dream for most people living in the remote corners of Assam. On Friday, a pregnant woman in labour struggled to reach the hospital due to the unavailability of transport in the Ghunasuti area in Assam’s Lakhimpur district.

The family members of the pregnant woman had to get her across the river on a dinghy and then on a horse-cart to get her admitted to the Lakhimpur district civil hospital.

About 10 kilometres from Lakhimpur town, the residents of Ghunasuti village still depend on dinghies and horse-carts to carry their patients to the hospital as there are no other means of transportation available for them.
