Despite India’s economic growth over the past several decades, its health outcomes still fare poorly. Large inequities in health and access to health services continue to persist and have even widened across states, between rural and urban areas and between rich and poor communities.
As doctors, we witnessed much of these inequities in action in the form of delayed health-seeking among the poorer sections of our society which often led to higher costs and worse health outcomes. Not unexpectedly, 5.5 Crore Indians are pushed into poverty each year due to catastrophic health costs.
Reach Lives is the result of a group of like minded doctors, businesspersons and philanthropists resolving to work together to reduce disparities in healthcare. Our intent has been to reach the most at-risk communities and help them overcome barriers and access healthcare routinely in a timely and cost-effective manner. The ultimate goal has been to empower marginalized communities to create a better world. The primary modalities we have used to meet our goal has been organizing medical camps and nutritional outreaches.
The communities that we have worked with include children in foster/care homes, elderly in old-age homes, slum dwellers, trans-persons and migrants living in temporary settlements.
