Challenge

There is only 2 % of medical practitioners dispensed for 78% of the rural poor which leaves many beyond the reach of basic health care. Unavailability of proper medical facility and accessibility to nearby hospitals, illiteracy and poverty are the major problems due to which many rural people in India cannot access health facilities. Hence the influence of quacks in rural areas is rampant which makes the state of basic healthcare quite problematic for the rural poor.

Solution

We would open health care centers at strategic location in rural areas which will have increased accessibility keeping in mind the affordability and quality of treatment. Besides providing basic medical facility we would conduct cataract surgery and cleft lip palate surgery, medical examinations like sugar tests free of cost and provide spectacles to needy patients at subsidized rates. the centres would be open 6 days a week from 9am to 5.30 pm.

Long-Term Impact

The project will stop the dominance of quacks and work as complimentary body to the government hospitals where there is a huge out pour of patients affecting deliverance of quality medical facility. Through our service delivery model increased awareness regarding taboos related to diseases will be addressed thus leading knowledge about various diseases. It has been found that that our centres hugely facilitate the growth of local economy besides an improvement in the local transport.
