Healthcare NGO in Assam | Piramal Swasthya

Assam

Assam is the 14th largest state in India by population and faces a variety of health challenges. Assam has a 54% shortage of Community Health Centres and a 72% shortage of specialists at Community Health Centres. The average distance to the nearest public health facility is 20 km. This is compounded by rugged and hilly terrain, making geographic access to healthcare especially challenging. Assam’s key health indicators fall significantly short of Indian national averages. The state’s total fertility rate is 2.5 (on par with India), maternal mortality ratio is 390 and infant mortality rate is 58.

Although still high, Assam’s maternal mortality ratio has drastically decreased from 540 as a result of targeted public health interventions.

Piramal Swasthya currently operates five programs in Assam:

104 Sarathi Health Information Helpline receives roughly 6,000 callers per day through a 50 seat call centre.

Sanjeevani Mobile Health Services has served 1.42 million patients with 2.37million visits across covering a population of 61.5 million. This program launched in February 2011 in Assam partnering with the Department of Health and Family Welfare, Government of Assam as a PPP model to provide healthcare access to the underserved & remote rural areas in the state by deploying a fleet of 80 Mobile medical units.

Mother and Child Tracking System is a 25 seat call centre setup in association with National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), Assam for pregnant women in Assam. This project aims at reducing Maternity Mortality Rate (MMR) and Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) by providing access to appropriate health care during pregnancy, childbirth, and immediately afterwards.

Piramal Swasthya launched Comprehensive Type 2 Diabetics Care in partnering with World Diabetes Foundation. This project aims to create a scalable and replicable platform for type 2 diabetes prevention, screening, and management for the rural poor in Assam.

Piramal Swasthya also operates Mobile Medical Units (MMU) for National Rural Health Mission under Department of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of Assam. MMU service intends to bring health care services to door steps of citizens especially in underserved areas. Each MMU consists of three vehicles.

  • One vehicle is used for transport of medical and Para-medical personnel
  • Second is used for carrying equipment/ accessories and basic laboratory facilities such as such as Microscope, Auto-analyzer etc
  • Third vehicle carries diagnostic equipment such as X-Ray, ultrasound, ECG machine and generator.

Since inception of the Project in September 2013, more than 61 thousand beneficiaries have been served by the 3 MMUs.
