Our Mission

To create a pilot program for access to care in rural areas of the world using local resources

Our Vision

To educate one person per village (population 1500-2000) in healthcare, sanitation and lifestyle modification education. This individual will screen the village population (including pregnant women) for diabetes, hypertension, chronic diseases, immunization and provide lifestyle modification education. He/she becomes the single point of contact for all healthcare of the villagers by forming liaison with the community health clinic, district hospital and the private practitioner. Having a person who lives in the village and does the Sevak work has an immediate buy in form the villagers.

Chairman Message

Dr. T. G. patel
Chairman
India is undergoing an epidemiological transition with both non-communicable and chronic diseases are the leading causes of death. Four studies in the state of Tamil Nadu and Gujarat showed marginalized access to health care. Seventy per cent of India lives in the villages (700 million people) and the importance of educating and delivery of healthcare to this large base of India in its resource-poor settings becomes an urgent and viable issue. Large-scale efforts to improve general awareness about diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, its risk factors, and to promote healthy lifestyles were lacking.
