The book is an attempt to narrate the pandemic, profile best management practices and to present the general public voice as it relates to public satisfaction and perceptions of health services. It also examines the public management response of a democratic government and draws lessons for effective public management in dealing with other grand public management challenges of our times.
According to Dr Pramila Menon, State Mother Child Nutrition Consultant UNICEF found the book to be a vital source of organic innovation which has been enabled by the tireless efforts of various unnamed health professionals, police personnel, district officials, sanitation workers, innovators, and members of the civil society, all of whom are COVID warriors and worthy of our collective appreciation.
