UN Sustainable Development Goal 3; Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
The private sector is primarily considered superior to the public sector in terms of delivery and quality of healthcare services in India and the not for profit sector is considered as a "third stakeholder" whose role had been mostly constricted to camps and awareness. Recently there has been a growing realization about the role of each stakeholder. To reach a level of sustainability we must focus on prevention, more than cure, to reduce the 'disease burden' on the common man and the healthcare providers.
Prabhaav Foundation in collaboration with ICICI Lombard has taken the initiative to create “Healthy Villages' by reaching out to people of these deprived villages with basic medical facilities by providing required equipment and rendering a helping hand to state-owned Primary Health Centres (PHC). We are modelling it with 2 villages near Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh and 2 in the holy city of Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. Under this initiative, we are providing basic infrastructural and medical facilities which are most essential to make the PHC operate to its fullest potential- like water facilities, building maintenance, basic sitting facilities for staff and visitors, clean washrooms, racks, and shelves, medical equipment, and machinery, etc.
Prabhaav realized that many factors play a key role in a child's success and good vision is one of them. We connected with schools in Nagpur, Pune and Ahmedabad to put up Eye care camps for the students, parents and school faculties. Trained Ophthalmologist and support staffs undertook the vision checkup and free spectacles were provided to all the children who faced a challenged vision.
Prabhaav Foundation continues to support various states during the pandemic by providing medical supplies like oximeters, ECG machines and oxygen concentrators to fill the critical gaps in essential medical care.
Awareness plays a key role in improving access to correct healthcare. Our Organization empowers communities and patients with the appropriate information, and skills so that they can make high-quality, informed decisions on prevention, diagnosis, treatment, care, and support. Our focus areas being Sanitation, Eye Care, Menstrual Hygiene, and any other Emergencies like Covid-19. Prabhaav conducted widespread awareness campaigns in line with NITI AAYOG and AAYUSH MINISTRY in a large number of communities in Delhi-NCR, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Odisha, Uttarakhand and Haryana.
