Suswastha Partnership

This project targets rural populations in India, focusing on awareness and access to primary healthcare, women and children's health, and prevention. Engagement is done through community-level meetings and weekly educative health programs by healthcare professionals.

Local GPs are also given educative sessions through Continuous Medical Education (CME), with the support of town healthcare professionals. The project is carried out in partnership with international NGOs such as AED and Clinton Foundation. There are currently discussions with USAID and the Indian National Rural Health Mission regarding their participation in the project.

Partnership objectives:

  • Educate and create health awareness in rural areas of India.
  • Increase access to primary healthcare for rural patients.
