Swasthmanthan is our key program active from the foundation day of our trust. This program is strongly rooted for the cause of Preventive healthcare & Cancer Screening along with the awareness in rural and urban India.
Through the revolutionary model of LaBike- “Lab on Wheels” & Mobile Detection Van (Mammography Unit) we are able to expand our services to the remotest of area Pan India & provide affordable, quality assured doorstep diagnostics.
Portable mobile lab & LaBike
Our subject matter & field experts offer on-ground insights on the status of healthcare disparities & the need for preventive healthcare through disruptive model of portable mobile lab & LaBike. Our Preventive health screening espouses non-communicable disease such as high blood pressure, diabetes etc., chronic diseases like- kidney failure, heart disease, liver disorders & Cancer Screening Tests – Breast Clinical Examination & Mammography Test, Oral Examination, Pap smear Test and prostate Test (PSA) etc.
WHY IT IS NEEDED
Increasing Burden of Lifestyle diseases & Increase in deaths due to Cancer (World Health Organization) WHO says 58.17 Lakh of people died in 2016 because of Lifestyle diseases also called as Non communicable disease like Cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Hypertension which alone accounted for 55% of premature mortality in India in the age group of 30-70.
While India lives in its villages the statistics of access to quality healthcare particularly in the low income groups are worrisome, where most are caught unaware which further increases the post-diagnostic treatment costs. In fact, a large segment of the population is deprived of even primary healthcare facilities. India needs newer and innovative ways like Mobile labs/LaBikes to provide care and compensate for the deficiencies of the healthcare workforce and infrastructure. Swasthgram is relentlessly working to answer this imperative need.
Fact: The top five cancers in men and women account for 47.2% of all cancers; these cancers can be prevented, screened for and/or detected early and treated at an early stage . This could significantly reduce the death rate from these cancers.
Motive to initiate Swasthmanthan
Most of us knows preventive health care is crucial but unfortunately our current lifestyle schedules & current ecosystem is not able to tackle it. To begin our journey we have done analysis and found the key reasons/challenges – PAAA
P stands for the biggest reason Psychological – I am too busy
Tripple A’s stands for:
- Lack of Awareness
- Lack of accessibility to service
- Lack of Affordability
To address this dire need Swasthmanthan program took its shape in January 2011 to provide healthcare screening services throughout India and developed the Basic Blood Diagnostics tests initiative. Over the past few years, we have helped, especially among marginalized communities in remote, rural areas and slums along with Urban Programs.
With working of all three important engines of disruptive technology, skilled manpower and strong network , Swasthgram is confident on their positive outcome that can realize their goals to come true of delivering “ Quality Diagnostic/Preventive care to 78% (95 Crore) people of India right at their doorstep”.
