To increase public access to healthcare and make it available to everyone


Yavatmal is one of the five distressed districts of Maharashtra State. The index of the district is 23.54 and is being the poorest district of Vidarbha region. The poverty decided in human development index is not merely based on per capita income but, also on the benchmark of facilities available and the death rate.  In accordance with that the Niti Ayog has declared that the required facilities are lacking in the district. Livelihood of people is mostly dependent on agriculture and the other sources of income are meagre. Due to very less sources of income the people have to manage their expenses within the income or otherwise have to borrow money. Under this circumstance they can’t afford hiring private health services and rely upon government health services. On the other hand, the quality of government health services is deteriorating day by day and thereby eighter they deprive of the services or they don’t obtainservices or benefits in time is the scene today.
