If we look at the situation through a development management perspective, we realize that majority of our efforts have mostly been on curative side of the healthcare system than preventive. To reach to a level of sustainability we must focus on prevention, even more than cure, so as to reduce the 'disease burden' on common man.
Awareness plays a key role in improving access to correct healthcare. Our Organization empowers communities and patients with appropriate information, and skills so that they can make high-quality, informed decisions on prevention, diagnosis, treatment, care, and support.
