Of India’s 1.2 billion population, 43.6% speak Hindi as a first language. That’s just over 500 million people. And these 500 million people—close to double of the American population, mind you—have almost no access to credible healthcare information online. At least not in the language they’d rather be reading in.
The problem doesn’t end there. The little information that is available in Hindi is often unreliable, if not downright misleading. A Google Hindi search page, for instance, throws up fruit as a cure for cancer.
