Action Today To Prevent Disability Tomorrow
  • Crisis: There are 27 million people with disabilities in India, of which more than 70% live in villages. While rural residents generally experience barriers to access to primary health care due to ignorance and neglect, these problems are further exacerbated for people with disabilities. IIF acts as a catalyst to bring together the Government, the corporate sector and NGOs in mass health programs of national priority.
  • Programs: 1) Lifeline Express: Lifeline Express, India's only, and the world's first hospital train was launched by IIF, which reaches those who cannot reach a hospital, bringing modern medical care to under-served rural and tribal areas. They have operated on more than one million disabled poor for the surgical restoration of sight, movement, hearing, correction of facial deformities and the prevention and treatment of epilepsy and dental problems, all free of cost. 2) Community Health Initiative: The CHI conducted by IIF in partnership with the Government is aimed at the prevention of disablement using available infrastructure and existing delivery systems. It is in support of the goals of the National Health Mission (NHM) to establish a fully functional, community owned, health-delivery system.
  • Outcome: In 2018, IIF has helped a total of 113,828 beneficiaries through the Lifeline Express and Community Health Initiative.
