  • Help the Needy, Poor and Destitute Patients for Medicines and Treatment


    One of the key factors contributing to poverty in the nation is still health problems and vice versa. Poor hygiene, low living standards, risky jobs for salaries, and other factors make the poor and the homeless more susceptible to health problems. The lack of awareness and education regarding these health issues makes them more likely to be prey to these ailments and accidents. The poor and marginalized fail to afford the high-priced treatment offered by private medical bodies. As a result, they are only left with the option of visiting a government hospital such as the Government Medical College and Hospitals in the area which provide the treatment at a very low cost and also assist the patients to avail the benefits from the appropriate schemes provided by the State and Central Government. With the introduction of the "Ayushman Bharat" Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya scheme in September 2018, the nation has made progress toward Universal Health Coverage. With almost 50% of the population
