Rural Healthcare is one of the biggest challenges that India is facing today. High mortality rates are subjected to poor health care facilities in the rural areas of India. More than 70% of India’s population is living under the roof of rural setup. These poorly established houses experience lack of proper supply of water and electricity. They manage to get a little water from far away distant places in order to proceed with their daily activities.
Apart from this, their situation is vulnerable because of lack of education and public health awareness. The key challenges in the health care domain are poor accountability, low-quality care, lack of health awareness and limited access to health facilities. As a result, majority of people in India, turn to local private health sector as their first choice of care. Local private health care is expensive and unregulated sometimes.
Considering the entire picture, DLF Foundation took the initiative of introducing rural India to health awareness programme. With the objective to, fill the gaps in implementation of various policies and programs failed to meet the goals of a healthy rural India. It aims to educate rural India and make them aware of how to take proper care of their health. This programme is focused towards addressing issues of personal health care, vaccination, hygiene, and illness prevention.
