Quality & affordable health Care is not available in Sunderban (South 24 Prg. District of West Bengal) which results in high incidence and prevalence of Diarrhea, RTI, Malaria, T.B., infant mortality etc. The elderly and terminally ill patients do not get proper care. Hospitals are far and transporting patients are difficult, expensive and time-consuming. Many people die due to lack of treatment.


Community Health workers of VIHC provide basic Health Education to villagers esp. mothers and bring ill/elderly villagers to our Community health centre where doctors provide free treatment & medicines. Serious patients are referred to Hospitals.

Long-Term Impact

The trained Health workers will ensure total immunisation, and other preventive health practices among 50000 villagers in 10 backward villages; Doctors at the Community Health Centre will treat 500 patients/month. Hospice care for 6 elderly patients
