Challenge

In India, 2.5 lakhs/yr babies are born with congenital heart disease.Prevalence of Rheumatic Valve disease & Ischemic heart disease is 1.5 & 1.98 lakhs respectively. However, the less privileged cannot afford expensive cardiac surgery.Government hospitals are overcrowded, Private Hospitals,are expensive.Government Insurance Schemes cover only 7 day packages.Parents are daily wage earners & cannot meet the travel & stay expenses near the tertiary centre. Follow-up for Impact Study is impossible

Solution

Multi-source funding is the Solution. Public Health centre with FCRA is eligible for funds. Average cost of 1 surgery is $2287.03. $1106.63 is contributed by CMCHIS for 7 day package which includes surgery. Remaining $1180.40 are raised from other funding organization. Expenses include Travel, Shelter, Preparation, Extra stay(if needed)&follow-up. Impact is also studied. It is entirely free for Patients.Revolving fund pool $14755.00 to $ 73775.00 will be the final solution for all the problem.

Long-Term Impact

Global Less privileged are neglected. If through fraternity, equality is established by funding,society is endowed with useful manpower. Self esteem is restored to the individual who, from school days proves himself to his family & society. Long term impact will be useful citizens to the country. Impact study shows that society doesn't accept them as normal. Awareness that 90% post surgery become normal should disseminate to all. Donor gets satisfaction that his funds have restored lives.
