Good health is a precursor to a good education and a financially independent life. But while a privileged few are willing and able to afford home check-ups and expensive treatments, most of the people living in semi-urban and rural areas are complete strangers to professional health care practices.
With this in mind, Deepalaya launched the Community Health programme, a multi-faceted project that focuses on establishing sustainable practices and spreading awareness regarding preventive and promotive health among the rural masses. Under this programme, Deepalaya addresses the health care needs of poor and underprivileged members of various communities through projects like the Chameli Dewan Memorial Rural Health & Mobile Clinic in Gusbethi and the AP Dewan Memorial Clinic in Kalkaji.
