Vision      :        Healthy India


Mission    :        Primary Care & Emergency Care for all Indians round the clock


Health is a fundamental requirement of any nation more so in a Developing Nations like India. Indian Economy is growing; considerable improvements in the  Health indication such as Infant mortality & life expectation has  happened. Still universal access to Health Care remains a distant reality.

According to the Economic Survey 2009-10, only 13% of the rural populations have access to a primary health care centre, only 33% have access to a sub-centre, barely 9.6% to a hospital and just 28.3%  to a dispensary or clinic.

Although Efforts have been undertaken, both by individuals and organizations, the situation is still far from encouraging. Lack of awareness about preventive measures and treatment, low levels of basic healthcare facilities, inadequate physicians and trained medical personnel, sanitation and minimal access to potable water are few of the key concern areas that need immediate attention.

Health experts are of the opinion that the has come to reclaim public health and make a paradigm shift from a policy-based entitlement for healthcare to a rights based entitlement.

Health care must be included as an infrastructyre category.
Health must became a constitutional  & right Indians
Healthy India can only be a strong of India.
Let us strive to reach to a Healthy India

We are yet to reach our goal of health for all. Access to and affordability of healthcare, especially for the underprivileged and marginalized sections of society, in particular women and children, remain under- accomplished tasks
