Sanjivani Health & Relief Committee was established to provide qualified healthcare services to poor people of villages around Ahmedabad. Today, SHRC has a team of 75 plus medical and para-medical personnel with 150 plus volunteers. So far, Sanjivani has treated more than 800,000 patients free of cost at an average of 15,000 patients per month.
Their activities include:
Rural Healthcare Services: SHRC believes that for integrated social development of poor rural and urban population, healthcare and education are two major areas. Hence, their focus is to empower the poor and underprivileged with better health and education. SHRC’s doctors visit villages in a mobile van with free medicines for the poor population. They provide dental, ophthalmic, blood sugar screening, hypertension, critical care and awareness services. Multispecialty camps with expert specialists are provided periodically to the rural population as well. The number of patients treated during FY15 in medical clinics was 1.08 lakhs.
Diabetes Project: The organization found that more than 20% of the rural population had diabetes which over time can damage the heart and blood vessels. This project was created to spread awareness, prevention, early detection and treatment of diabetes free of cost. It is supported by the Bristol Myer’s Squibb Foundation, USA. Under this project, people above 35 years of age are provided free education about the disease and tests are conducted for detection of Diabetes and Hyper tension.
Nodal Sanjivani Arogya Kendra: In May 2011, Sanjivani Arogya Kendra was started to provide medical care to the poor urban population at a nominal cost. Currently SHRC has 4 such centers where around 450 patients are benefitted.
Sanjivani Sanskar Dham: This is a free education support centre created by Sanjivani because they recognized a lack of health education available in schools. Poor children are provided with notebooks, texts, pencils and other learning tools along with 18 teachers who volunteer their time. 180 students attend the Centre.
