Healthcare in Communities


We ensure community involvement in a range of our health programmes.

REACHING THE UNREACHED

SEESHA’s health outreach extends to remote rural and tribal communities where the access to advanced medical care is limited. As part of this programme, SEESHA organises medical and surgical camps, supporting local hospitals and helping people who cannot afford expensive surgical procedures.

SEESHA undertakes innovative, inexpensive surgical procedures and treatment methods, which has helped several patients recover completely. Research and development of new technology and medical equipment is undertaken by SEESHA in association with Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences (KITS).

Our health outreach extends to (but is not limited to) the following rural and tribal regions:

  • Dimapur, Nagaland
  • Jalukie, Nagaland
  • Churachandpur, Manipur
  • Bhalukpong, Arunachal Pradesh
  • Aizawl, Mizoram
  • Sattoli, Uttarakhand
  • Gudalur, Tamil Nadu
  • Sitlingi, Tamil Nadu
  • Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu

Recognition from Project Management Institute (PMI)

In 2017, SEESHA has secured the honour as runner-up to the “Project of the Year” award in the NGO category for making modern minimally invasive surgeries available and affordable in rural and tribal regions through the SEESHA hospital. The award was instituted by Project Management Institute (PMI), a renowned International Institute that has trained over 3 million management professionals across the globe.

Each year, PMI evaluates and honours projects from a range of fields including global advocacy, collaboration, education and research. This award is in recognition of “project team that has achieved superior results through exemplary application of project management principles for projects, programs or similar initiatives implemented by Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs).”

COMMUNITY HEALTH FACILITATORS

Motivated women from the SEESHA adopted villages, who have a thirst for learning and a passion to serve their communities, are specifically trained by SEESHA to become Community Health Facilitators. They act as health ambassadors, promoting health and preventing disease in their own local communities.

Additionally, blood donation camps are organised jointly with blood banks, in aid of Thalassemia patients every year. These camps are conducted in urban setups and encourage donors to contribute towards saving human lives.
