Challenge

KMIO is a 675 bed Regional Cancer Centre partly funded by the Government of India which provides high quality health care at nominal rates. It caters to cancer patients mostly belonging to a lower socioeconomic status who cannot even afford two square meals a day. 18,000 new patients are registered every year of which 3600 are not eligible for any concessions from any source due to reasons like the patients being illiterates and not possessing required documents or coming from other states.

Solution

Treatment is often discontinued for lack of money. Sanman tracks the patients and provides for the continuity of treatment. children with leukemia undergoing long term treatment require medicines, blood and bone marrow needles on a regular basis which is a financial challenge to the parents. Any additional funding will aid the patient to continue the treatment.Chemo ports are a must in developed countries but a luxury in India funding this, will make the treatment more effective, less painful.

Long-Term Impact

It enables the patient to complete the treatment, and come for further follow up. Since continuity of treatment is assured, the patient is in a more positive frame of mind. The disease being controlled they have a better life style and the care givers are also able to cope with the situation. Funding would provide for more number of economically backward patients to come forward for the treatment, In the long run it would facilitate the treatment for a larger number of patients.
