Abstract: According to the world health organization there should be a minimum ratio between doctors and patients which is one as to one thousand respectively. In India this ratio is one as to one thousand and seven hundred so there are seven hundred citizens in India who do not get a proper medication. Union health ministry of India claims that India would need four lakh more doctors up to 2020. To fill up this deficiency I proposed a prototype which will detect the disease and prescribe a proper medication for that particular detected disease. Medical professionals detect most of diseases on the basis of symptoms and signs of that disease. So collecting the symptoms of various diseases from an experienced doctor we can easily detect the disease. We cannot use only one method foe detection. To pinpoint the exact disease which is acquired by the patient we have to use multiple methods.
