Jamtara – India’s 1st district with Library in every village
Library in every village – When it comes to basic healthcare amenities, India’s rural areas are sometimes inaccessible or distant. According to a survey, around 75% of hospitals and health-care facilities are concentrated in metropolitan regions, while just 25% of India’s population resides. The majority of the population lives in rural areas, where they lack access to basic healthcare.
SBI Foundation, in collaboration with Akhil Bhartiya Gramin Uthan Samiti (ABGUS), launched “SBI Sanjeevani-Clinic on Wheels,” a mobile medical unit project that began in 20 distant villages in the Tauru block of Haryana’s district Nuh. The MMU has all of the basic and required facilities to provide both preventive and curative health services, as well as diagnostic and referral services. To meet the needs of IPD and crucial healthcare services, the initiative has partnered with the government’s “Community Health Centre, Tauru.” The MMU initiative of the ABGUS-SBI Foundation will also hold regular specialised health and awareness camps in these isolated areas.
