  • Need

    Need

    A plaguing concern is providing affordable healthcare solutions to the tribal masses especially in remote areas. The tribal population district face a lack of awareness of basic health-related issues which lead to premature deliveries, physical and mental disabilities, vulnerability to diseases and other medical issues. The existing 80- bed hospital currently has a bed occupancy running at 130% -140%. The overwhelming demand requires a new larger facility to ensure more lives are benefitted.

    Solution

    The proposed new hospital will have 200 beds to cope with the demand and up-to-date facilities to provide optimum care for those in need. Through a holistic programme endeavouring to provide the highest quality health care for the community through 8 steps:
    - Health Awareness Programme
    - In and out patient services
    - Ensuring safe motherhood
    - Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
    - Early Intervention Centre
    - Child Malnutrition Treatment Centre
    - Centre for physically challenged
    - Mobile dental van

  • Impact

    Impact

    - providing health care to those who cannot afford it in the area as everybody should have a right to being in good health. Success would include more ill patients being aware of this facility to use its services
    - offer this service to many more people than currently possible. Success would involve more patients visiting the hospital resulting in greater number of treatments
    - Greater number of rural population gaining knowledge of basic health issues, more
    awareness of hygiene & other needs

    Risk

    The project is in an extension of a successful existing project. The current Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital has been a huge success with recognition of excellence by government of Gujarat. The hospital has achieved a First Referral Unit Certificate and Medscape Award for Excellence in Rural Healthcare. The risks facing the project include insufficient funds being raised, lack of skilled staff and overwhelming demand. As a proven model, we are confident that the risks are mitigated.

    Reporting

    Donors will receive an update report every 3 months about the progress of the project along with visuals and appropriate statistics. Donors are also able to visit the site to assess progress.
